PHY102 Lab course for minors

Dozent: Dr. Katharina Müller


  • As part of the minor subject physics, you will carry out a basic lab course in the spring semester. In this course will teach you the basic knowledge of physical measurement methods, the recording and evaluation of measurement data and error analysis.
    The module starts in the second week of the semester with a lecture, attendance of which  is compulsory.
    For each experiment (with the exception of the introductory experiment), a report is prepared and proofread by the assistants. The reports often have to be written in English. More detailed information will be given in the introductory lecture.
    Start of the course: Lecture on error calculation (2nd week of the semester)

    • Tuesday, 27.2.23, 14:00-15:15, Y17-K-11
    • Wednesday, 28.2.23, 14:00-15:15, Y11-G-42
