Lab[edit | edit source]
Go over test?
Report longer than a half page.
Do assigned circuit
Make a quick circuit diagram.
Most important part: Document with greek letters.
- Group reports encouraged.
- You must do the assigned circuit, unless you choose to do no circuit.
- Most of the time, you can do a report on something else.
- Choices: Previous test or Area of a sphere using calculus.

- Answer without using calculus
- Do a first order approximation (whisky-cigar w/o the cigar) and compare the answers.
- Can you define an intrinsic variable for the bent/wrinkled tape?
Set the radius at the free-throw be nominally R= 2m and let the tape width be W=4cm. Express all your equations using the symbols (R,W) in order to app

Projects[edit | edit source]
The goal of each project is co-authorship on the Lake Campus Research Symposium
Conceptual technical writing[edit | edit source]
Optics and manufacturing[edit | edit source]
Radioactive decay, statistics, and computer programming[edit | edit source]
Mathematical physics[edit | edit source]
- Why is useful if not true
- Generalizing the Taylor expansion to two dimensions
- Calculating the area of a sphere and how that eventually led to a precise definition of temperature and entropy
Creating exam questions[edit | edit source]
Mechanics, music and measurement of time[edit | edit source]
Gridion pendulum and properties of materials[edit | edit source]
Physics 1110 labs[edit | edit source]
- Force table w Escel and error analysis
- Stretching a long string
- Others are possible
Charge due to a slab of charge[edit | edit source]
10-15T (week8)[edit | edit source]
Start lab schedule[edit | edit source]
- Unless I change my mind, you are all allowed to do this lab by doing an assigned lab and the report. The only complication is that I might not have enough "traditional" labs for you to do. I might be forced to make you do one of my projects on one or two lab sessions.
- For that reason, I need a list of people who wish to do a project leading to a symposium poster.
- There is a shortage of people who want to do the Thursday late lab (4:25-5:20) due to a difficult class that follows. We will devote that time-slot to a project related to materials, and set aside time for study if you have an exam just after the test.
- I have two "engineering projects":
- My most exciting project is essentially a this technical writing problem. If this is successful (and it probably won't be), you could be a co-author on a refereed journal article.
