Overview

This book explains how to plan, execute, analyse and write up an experiment. Experimentation is an essential part of science and engineering, being both the basis of discovery in science and an integral part of engineering development. The authors' aim is to provide instruction in how to perform a systematic experiment from its conception and design through to the communication of results. The text opens by laying the ground rules for the planning of an experiment, moving on to a description of measurement techniques and statistical analysis of results. An important feature of the book is the inclusion of a chapter on the interfacing of experimental equipment to microcomputers.
