|The weekly laboratory exercises are 3
hours long. Our lab room is 4314 Chamberlin Hall.
More information regarding the lab and
lab procedures are available in the printed Physics 201 Lab Manual
(available at the bookstore) and at the
Physics 201 Lab
web server. Follow the "General
Instructions" in the laboratory manual. Please read the
instructions for each lab before attending the lab session.
You are required to keep a lab
notebook. The lab notebook must be spiral bound, preferably with
cross-hatched ruling. Bring this notebook to the first lab.
The experiments are to be written up during the laboratory period in
the lab notebook. The lab notebook is not to be taken from the lab.
You must attend lab only in the time slot for your session. A valid
excuse and the permission of both
TA's are required if you have to attend an alternative session. A
make-up slot is scheduled on every exam week (see the syllabus).
Labs can only be made up in the midterm exam week that immediately
follows the missed lab; for example, if you miss the second lab, it
can only be made up during the week of the first midterm exam.
There will be no exceptions to this rule. Please inform your TA
that you need to make up the lab ahead of time so that arrangements
can be made.
Labs are mandatory. Each missed lab automatically lowers your final
course grade by half a letter grade point.
