« Back to Course Listing

Course Format Lecture 1.0 h + Seminar 0.0 h + Lab. 3.0 h
Credits 2.0

Course Description

The student will perform experiments in thermal physics and mechanics. Lectures will introduce the theory of error propagation, data analysis, and parameter determination for various theoretical models through the use of weighted least-squares curve-fitting. Computer software for data analysis and weighted least-squares curve-fitting will be introduced. The student will analyze data from the experiments using the methods and software introduced in lectures.

Students will receive credit for only one of PHYS 2309, 2327, or 2328.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in PHYS 1125 and 1225.
