Synopsis:

This introductory course is devoted to the essentials of measurements of the most important physical quantities. It is especially recommended to those students who are going to study one of the physicas curricula - Physical engineering and Nuclear engineering. Also the methods of evaluation of statistical data using PC and practical work with measurement devices is involved. Students learn main rules connected with experimental work in physical laboratory.
