Physics 1 Lab Manual
Authors: Irin M. Malajito, Mara Crisaliz B. Paras, Myra S. Ferrer
This laboratory manual has been created to substantiate the concepts being presented during the lecture in Physics 1. It would be most beneficial if a particular theory will be presented to the students before an experiment is performed. The procedures in this manual are detailed, constructed step.by-step in order for the students to be independent in their performance of the experiment. The application questions link the concepts of physics with everyday scenario for better retention, and with industry practices in order to create mindset among students of their future tasks. The exercises will enhance the skills of the students in problem solving.
OBJECTIVES OF PERFORMING THE ACTIVITY IN PHYSICS
Laboratory work is designed to:
familiarize students with the fundamental principle of the subject firsthand manipulation of apparatus and personal application of the principle studies.
train students with the methods and thoughtful experience in experimentation, careful observation and honest recording of data, critical analysis, correlation and interpretation of experimental data
familiarize students in the use of laboratory apparatus and techniques used in physical measurements
train students in making valid and worthwhile conclusion from observed data.
