Third Quarter

The third quarter of the undergraduate physics labs includes experiments covering the topics of sound waves, electromagnetic waves, geometric optics, interference and diffraction, the quantum nature of particles and light, and atomic phenomena.

A total of eight experiments will be performed during the quarter as dictated by the lab schedule. These experiments are described in a Laboratory Manual available at Norris Bookstore. The lab instructions are also available for download...click 'Experiments' at the left or download them all at once here.

The course policies and procedures are detailed in the syllabus.

Northwestern University's CANVAS course management system will provide students with access to updated course documents and the student's status and progress as time passes, the student submits his/her work, and the work is evaluated.
