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.
