Physics Laboratory Excursion Development

Laboratory experiments for the Physics I and Physics II classes were evaluated based on their effectiveness in conveying concepts, resulting in the modification of the Rotational Inertia Lab. Using basic physics the rotational and translational accelerations and energies of cylinders, spheres, and rings of equal radius, created as a result of this modification, were determined. Additionally, a Fluid Dynamics Lab is in the process of being designed and tested to complement existing labs and lecture demonstrations.
