Physics Lab Manual / Edition 3 available in Paperback
Designed to help you develop your intuitive abilities in physics, the PHYSICS LAB MANUAL emphasizes conceptual understanding and includes a thorough discussion of physical theory to help you see the connection between the lab and the lecture. Each lab includes a set of pre-lab exercises, and many labs give you hands-on experience with statistical analysis.
