Lab 1 also called the freshmen lab is our flagship laboratory. On these pages, you will find important notes and details of all the insightful experiments that we try to build and communicate to our students.

Preparatory lectures

Here is a series of six lectures presented under the banner of the introductory physics laboratory course offered to science and engineering students. The presentations and associated videos encompass some exciting features of lab work, bring home the idea of standardized uncertainty measurements and present examples of how accurate graphical presentation of data can illuminate new experiences in the physics. The lectures encompass ideas such as the culture of experimental physics, science of measurement and uncertainties, an introduction to the Physics Lab developed at LUMS and techniques for accurate and meaningful plotting of experimental data. Of course, we also cover the idea of mathematical models to represent data. Details can be viewed in the video links presented below.
