PHYSICS 122 - E&M Laboratory Announcements - Fall 2017

 

1.      Dr. D. Driscoll is in charge of the laboratories.

         Office: Rockefeller 222C, Phone: x-8844; e-mail: diana.driscoll@case.edu

        

2.      The manual for the course has been extensively revised. You can purchase the lab manual at the Bookstore or find an older, less accurate version of the lab manual on the lab website http://physicslabs.cwru.edu. You can copy the Microsoft Word® versions of every part of the manual from the lab server (Wertsrv) P: drive in the “E&M Manual” directory. Log on to Wertlabs - Wertsrv with user name: RemoteLab and password: uglabs. (You may NOT print out your own copies of the manual with the Undergraduate Lab printers!) There are also pdf versions of the manual available on the web.

 

3.      You must bring a lab notebook to lab. Only notebooks that generate a duplicate copy of your notes are allowed. You must hand this copy in to your TA at the end of your lab period. You may re-use your notebook from last spring, if you have one. Also bring a calculator and a pen to class. You need a pen that will make legible duplicates of your notebook pages; soft tip pens will not work reliably.

 

4.      There will be at most only very short lectures at the beginning of the lab. Experi­ments will occasionally be scheduled before the relevant theory is covered in the course lecture. Therefore, you MUST READ the pertinent section(s) of the manual BEFORE coming to lab. This is particularly important since the amount of mate­rial covered in each E&M lab is much greater than in the Mechanics labs. You may NOT be able to finish the labs if you must read the manual for the first time when you come to lab.

 

         Before coming to your first lab, read Lab #1, DC Circuits. You should also scan through the preface, introduction, lab sermon, and the appendices (particularly Appendices #1—Notebooks and #2—Reports) and note changes in policies and procedures from last semester.

 

5.      Updates and corrections to the labs are posted on the lab web page. Read this infor­mation before you begin your experiments. The lab web site is http://physicslabs.cwru.edu.

 

6.      Check your schedule to be certain you show up at the right time for your lab. The first week of classes, only students in Lab Sections PHYS122-110 (1453), PHYS122-111 (1290), PHYS122-112 (1291), PHYS122-113 (1292), PHYS122-118 (2686), (“odd week”) should come to lab. Sections PHYS122-114 (1293), PHYS122-115 (1294), PHYS122-116 (1295), and PHYS122-117 (1296) (“even week”) meet the second week of classes.

 

7.      Rooms 402 & 403 in Rockefeller are the E&M labs. Come to Rock 403 at the begin­ning of the first lab period for some brief announcements.

 

8.      If you wish to change lab sections, consult the Registrar’s searchable schedule of classes to determine which sections still have space. The list of sections is repro­duced below.

 

         After classes start, you may not be able to change lab sections without a permit. These permits must be obtained from Dr. Driscoll. This can be handled by email. Generally, you will not be given an override for a full section if you can make any other lab time, include nights and early mornings.

 

         If there is some doubt about your getting into your preferred section, come to the earliest lab (early in the 2-week cycle for labs) that you might attend, whether you are registered for it or not. Waiting and coming to a later lab to which you might not be admitted could mean that you get into no lab at all, if that later lab is full. If you come to an earlier lab for which you are not registered and there is room, you can obtain a permit in class that will let you stay in that lab permanently, turning in the form later that day or the next to formalize the arrangements. If you want to switch to a lab later in the 2-week cycle, you might have to do the first lab at your scheduled time and come to the later lab also to see how many of the registered students actually show up.

 

9.      Students agree that by taking this course, all required lab reports or other assignments submitted for credit may be submitted to TurnItIn.com or similar third parties to review and evaluate for originality and intellectual integrity and that if the results of such a review support an allegation of academic dishonesty, the course work in question as well as any sup­porting materials may be submitted to the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies for investigation and further action. Understand that all work submitted to TurnItIn.com will be added to its data­base of papers.
