Students independently perform five of the following 10 exercises:
Free and forced oscillations: Using torsional pendulum with suffocation and excitation, students study the behavior of free oscillators, dumped oscillators and driven and dumped oscillators.
Coupled pendulums: Students study phenomena in coupled oscillation of the pendulum: the oscillation of the phase oscillation in antiphase, and the regime of shock.
StefanBoltzmann law of radiation: Students use Moll thermopile and incandescent lamps to experimentally determine energy exitance dependence on body temperature, and compare observations with the StefanBoltzmann law.
FranckHertz experiment: Students perform FranckHertz experiment on the apparatus with neon tubes.
Magnetic susceptibility of liquids: Students measure the magnetic susceptibility solution with different concentrations of paramagnetic salts.
Photoelectric effect and Planck's constant. Polarization of light: Students using the photoelectric effect determine the value of Planck's constant. In the second part of exercise linear polarizers and lambda / 4 tiles are used for polarizing light.
MaxwellBoltzmann distribution of speed: Students use the apparatus to simulate the thermodynamic phenomena using glass balls to study the distribution of speed.
Chaotic oscillations in an electric oscillating circuit: Students examine the emergence of chaotic oscillations in the electrical oscillating circuit with nonlinear element (diode).
Measurement of low resistance: Students learn to measure electrical resistance method with four relays, and by van der Pauw method.
Skin effect: Students measure the thickness of the conductive layer (the skin) in the metal bars.
Student makes each exercise in two consecutive terms.
LEARNING OUTCOMES:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
independently use measuring devices and apparatus in the field of mechanics, electromagnetism, optics, thermodynamics and quantum physics, to perform complex experiments;
analyze the measured data using statistical methods and graph the results;
present the results of their work in the form of a written report, which is structured as a scientific work, as well as a short oral report, which is structured as a lecture at a scientific conference;
connect theoretical knowledge with performing exercises and functioning of the components of the apparatus;
generalize the results of measurements and critically examine and interpret in the light of the wellknown theory.
