PHY 123 Main Page

Welcome to Physics 123, the laboratory component of Physics 121. This page is where you will find all the materials you will require for the laboratory. The lab manuals for this course are in an online format and include video content and tools to help you make calculations and plot the data you will record in your experiments.

A unique feature of this lab course is that there is no written report due after the lab. You will be assessed in class by your TAs based on exercises you complete and discussions you have with them. The assessment is of the form Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory/Non-Serious attempt. If you are given a grade of Satisfactory then you will get the full the credit for the lab. Unsatisfactory grades mean you get only half credit for the lab. Non-Serious attempt gives you no credit for the lab. As all work is done in class you should count on being in lab for the full 2hrs.

You can find information about your Section (when and where it meets) and your TA's contact details on the Sections page.

Below you can find the links to the lab materials for each lab. Note that they will not necessarily be available until about one week before the lab takes place.
