The laws of physics are based on experimental and observational facts. Therefore, laboratory works are an important part of general physics course and other courses on physical profile, helping BHOS students to develop their skills in conducting basic scientific measurements and deepen their understanding of the physical laws.
The goal of the work in the laboratory is to give the student an understanding of the importance of physical ideas in the framework of the actual work with the devices and equipment, and to acquaint him or her with the methods and tools of physical research.
For students it is important that they can experience the difficulties of quantitative measurements in the real world and learn how to record and process experimental data. For these reasons, the successful implementation and completion of the laboratory work is required of each BHOS student.
The laboratory is equipped by the modern laboratory equipment that was purchased from LD DIDACTIC Group (Germany) which is the world famous company supplying equipment for university research laboratories also known as a leading global manufacturer of high quality science and engineering teaching and training systems for higher schools and Universities.
This laboratory is equipped with the following equipment:
Energy and linear momentum in inelastic collision - Measuring with two forked light barriers
Path-time diagrams of rotational motions - Recording and evaluating with CASSY
Confirming Coulomb’s law – measuring with the torsion balance, Schürholz design
Measuring the electric field strength inside a plate capacitor
Measuring the force acting on current-carrying conductors in a homogeneous magnetic field - Recording with CASSY
Measuring the induction voltage in a conductor loop for a variable magnetic field - with triangular current generator
Interference at a Fresnel's mirror with an He-Ne laser
Deflection of electrons at a polycrystalline lattice (Debye-Scherrer diffraction)
Determining the wavelengths Hɑ, Hɮ and Hɣ from the Balmer series of hydrogen
Determining the half-life of Cs-137 - Recording and evaluating the decay curve with CASSY
