Physics Laboratory
This is the required physics laboratory for both the PHYSICS 130-1,2,3 and the PHYSICS 135-1,2,3 sequences. This noncredit, no-fee laboratory may not be waived or taken separately. Students must register separately for each course of the laboratory (136-1, 136-2, 136-3) if they are taking more than one course in either physics sequence. The enrollment in each laboratory section is strictly limited to 20 students. Students must not assume that they are able to take a section at a specific time. Part-time work or other commitments must be arranged so that students can be in alternate laboratory sections should their first choice be closed. The eight-week sequence comprises a total of 24 laboratories, 8 for each course. At the start of classes, students receive a syllabus showing the exact days on which laboratories meet.

Lab

6/18 - 8/17
Laboratories meet on a rotating schedule, meaning that they meet on M, T, W, Th, F, but not every M, not every T, etc. There are an average of three labs per week.
