About the book

Salient Features of the Books:

  • A list of commonly used Experiment Tools in Physics laboratory
  • A section on Laboratory Ethics given in the beginning includes a set of guidelines to remind students on how to conduct while working in the laboratory
  • Experiments given in a systematic way
  • Procedure aided with neat and labelled diagrams, wherever necessary
  • Questions to prepare for Viva Voce given at the end of each experiment


Unit 1: Experiments Based on Levers

Experiment 1.1: To determine the mass of the given metre scale

Experiment 1.2: To determine the weight of a given object using a metre scale

Unit 2: Pulley System

Experiment 2: To determine the mechanical advantage (MA) and velocity ratio (VR) of a given pulley system

Unit 3: Refraction through a Glass Slab

Experiment 3: To trace the path of different rays of light refracting through a rectangular glass slab at different angles of incidence. Measure the angles of incidence, refraction and emergence. Also measure the lateral displacement

Unit 4: Optics (Refraction of Light through Lenses)

Experiment 4.1: To determine the focal length of a convex lens using distant object method

Experiment 4.2: To determine the focal length of a convex lens using a plane mirror and a needle

Experiment 5: To determine the focal length of a convex lens using u-v method and the lens formula

Unit 5: Refraction of Light Rays through a Prism

Experiment 6: To trace the path of a ray of light passing through a glass prism and to show that
i + e = A + d and A = r1 + r2

Experiment 7: To trace the path of a ray of light incident normally (?i = 0°) on different types of prisms (Angle of prism, ?A = 60°, 45° and 90°) and measure the angle of deviation d in each case

Unit 6: Heat Transfer

Experiment 8: To calculate the specific heat of the material of the given calorimeter from the temperature readings and masses of cold water, warm water and its mixture taken in the calorimeter

Experiment 9: To determine the specific heat of a metal by the method of mixtures

Experiment 10: To determine the specific latent heat of ice

Unit 7: Experiments Based on Electricity

Experiment 11: To verify Ohm’s law and hence determine the value of an unknown resistance

Experiment 12: To set up a model of domestic electric wiring circuit including main wiring circuit and to study the functions of switches and fuses
