Module Details

Ability to apply basic sciences in engineering problems

Ability to apply experimental and computing methodology, data analysis and interpretation

Ability to formulate models and apply computing methodologies for solving engineering problems

Knowledge of general physics (Mechanical, Electromagnetism, Optics, Heat and Temperature

Within the context of this laboratory, the students practice in totally 8 exercises that involve the use of basic and advanced instruments in order to collect experimental data, and the writing of a lab report where the data is processed (experimental errors, capturing data in graphs and identify mathematical relationships). The exercises are:


Exercise 1    Basic physical quantities: Measuring length, time and mass        

Exercise 2    Solar collector: Measuring heating rates of different surfaces


Exercise 3    Optical lenses: Determination of the focal length of a thin converging lens,  magnification 

Exercise 4    Diffraction: Diffraction pattern from laser light on micro-slits (1 & 2)


Exercise 5    Photovoltaic cell: Current-Voltage curve of a solar cell, Power

Exercise 6    Capacitors: Charging and discharging capacitors in DC circuits

Exercise 7    RLC circuit: Resonance of the Electrical current as a function of frequency

Exercise 8     Oscilloscope functions: Using the oscilloscope in an AC circuit to measure voltages and frequencies

Groups of 3 students per laboratory experiment and individual written reports per experiment, teaching for the exploitation of the experimental results and their presentation
