Physics Activity Questions
following questions refer to various activities, which are presented in the
form of investigative experiments. As
you work through each experiment, keep a complete set of lab notes (what you are
doing and what you are finding) and submit your notes with a brief summary
report of your work.
some of the photos under Task One in the Bubble
Chamber activity. Then
answer the questions in Task Two (in your own words and without looking
at the answers!).
the muon lifetime
either X ray spectra (identify at
least one of the unknowns) or Measuring half life
(calculate the half life of one of the given isoptopes).
Activities One through Five in the Simulated
Cosmic Ray Detection Experiment.
Multiplier Tube experiment.
activity. Explain how quantum
mechanics limits the meaning of the term monochromatic. Distinguish between spatical
coherence and temporal coherence. Then complete the experiment measuring
the wavelength of a laser with a ruler.
