Department of Physics
Synopsis:

The lecture is designed for students of physical specializations (Experimental particle physics, Physical engineering,Nuclear engineering), however, it can be attended by students of other branches. The goal of the lecture is to introducethe basics of physical measurements, the methods of processing and evaluation of acquired data on a PC. Studentslearn the basic habits of work in a physics lab.

Requirements:

Knowledge of basic course of physics

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Physical quantities and units.

2. Basic methods of measurement.

3. General structure of an experiment.

4. Basic concepts of statistics.

5. Evaluation of data and measurement errors.

6. Evaluation of data on a PC.

7. Measurement of length, mass, time; mechanical and thermal measurements.

8. Electrical measurements – analogue and digital measurement apparatus, oscilloscope, XY recorder, frequencygenerator.
