of Physics and Astronomy
Franklin & Marshall College
We will hand out a tentative schedule at the start off the semester which outlines the expected lab sequence. In addition, we have a lab manual which contains descriptions of these labs and has auxiliary information such as an important summary of expectations for the course and more technical documents on uncertainty, journal formats for writeups, and some data sheets. The latter will prove useful in some of the labs. We will go over all of this in person.
We will regularly meet in Hackman 220 (the senior advanced lab) on Tue and Thu from 1:30 - 4:20 p.m.. However, apart from these meeting times, it will be necessary for you to occasionally come in on your own to finish up lab work or analysis. For some of the astronomy projects, experimental data must be collected in the evenings or possibly the mornings (in any case, outside of class time), depending on the experiment. We will arrange this in person after the start of the course.
