Physics Lab (Section 01)

Location: RM 414

Bridging the Abstract and Real Worlds

In physics, we study the natural phenomena, construct scientific models, and find the beautiful laws governing our world. The whole process won't be complete if we do not involve the process of conducting experiments. Labs are the tools to differentiate fantasies from scientific facts. They are the tools to link the theories and reality. Doing labs is also an important process to help students understand physics concepts in a solid way. We are going to have a series of labs covering all the major topics of the year. Enjoy our fun labs!

NY State’s Policy of Labs
