Course Objectives

This lab has been designed to provide an introduction to the ideas and concepts of Physics that would serve as a foundation for subsequent electronic engineering courses. The primary objective is to endow the knowledge of a wide variety of electric and magnetic phenomena along with their scientific applications, specifically, in the field of electronic engineering. The lab starts with a short review of basics of electricity. A majority of the lab experiments are then dedicated for electric and magnetic fields, forces, elements and their applications.

Course Learning Outcomes (CLO)

CLO-1: Follow the instructions to measure key variables of interest such as acceleration due to gravity, spring constant, force and its components, voltage and current in a circuit with confidence and proficiency. (P2)

CLO-2: Explain related graphs (such as force- displacement graph and voltage-current graph) with confidence and proficiency. (P2)

CLO-3: Compute experimental data by comparing theoretical values with experimentally measured values. (C3)

CLO-4: Answer the questions related to experiments and discuss confidently on direct questioning. (A2)
