PHYSICS 116/122/124 - E&M Laboratory Announcements – Spring 2018

 

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 can be purchased at the Bookstore. You can also find the lab manual on the lab website http://physicslabs.cwru.edu and on Canvas. You can copy the Microsoft Word® versions of every part of the manual from the lab server (Wertsrv) P: drive in the “Mechanics 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 but, because of file conversion problems, there may be errors and missing pages in these documents.

 

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 semester, 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.) For a refresher on error propagation, watch the Uncertainty video in Canvas, which you can find in Modules.

 

5.      Updates and corrections to the labs are posted on the lab web page and in Canvas. Read this infor­mation before you begin your experiments. The lab web site is http://physicslabs.phys.case.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 “odd week” labs should come to lab (refer to the list below): PHYS116 Lab Sections 1, 2, 3, & 4, PHYS122 Lab Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7 and PHYS124 Sections 1 & 2. PHYS116 Lab Sections 5, 6 & 7, PHYS 122 Lab Sections 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, & 14 (“even week”) meet the second week of classes starting January 22nd

 

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

 

8.      If you wish to change lab sections, consult SIS to determine which sections still have space. This will change frequently over the first two weeks of classes. 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 has to be handled through SIS. Generally, you will not be given an override for a full section if you can make any other lab time, including 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.

 

9.      Students agree that by taking this course, all required lab reports or other assignments submitted for credit may be submitted to TurnItIn.com 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 Student Conduct for investigation and further action. Understand that all work submitted to TurnItIn.com will be added to its data­base of papers.
