Physics Laboratory Experiments by Jerry D. Wilson

By Jerry D. Wilson

This market-leading guide for the first-year physics laboratory direction deals a variety of class-tested experiments designed in particular to be used in small to mid-size lab courses. a sequence of built-in experiments emphasizes using automated instrumentation and features a set of "computer-assisted experiments" to permit scholars and teachers to realize adventure with sleek gear. this selection additionally allows teachers to figure out the ideal stability among conventional and computer-based experiments for his or her classes. via studying information via various equipment, scholars achieve a better knowing of the innovations at the back of the experiments. The 7th variation is up to date with the newest details and methods concerning state of the art gear, and a brand new Guided studying characteristic addresses the becoming curiosity in guided-inquiry pedagogy. Fourteen extra experiments also are to be had via customized printing.

Make: Technology on Your Time, Vol. 22

Automate your international with handheld remote control in MAKE: quantity 22. From puppy care to strength retailers, from toys to telepresence, we will enable you to upload a joystick, push-button, twist-know, or timer to almost whatever. MAKE remains to be a pace-setter within the tech DIY circulation because of its uncanny intuition to interact the interest, power, and keenness of the becoming group of Makers -- DIY fans, hobbyist engineers/designers, and others who wish to tweak, disassemble, recreate, and invent cool new makes use of for know-how in extraordinary initiatives they adopt of their backyards, basements, and garages.

Physics for Radiation Protection: A Handbook

A hugely sensible reference for healthiness physicists and different pros, addressing useful difficulties in radiation safeguard, this new version has been thoroughly revised, up to date and supplemented by way of such new sections as log-normal distribution and electronic radiography, in addition to new chapters on inner radiation dose and the environmental shipping of radionuclides.
