All students must abide by the Lab Safety Rules while present in the physics laboratory room.
All students must complete a Lab Safety Quiz posted in their Physics Lab Blackboard Site before they are allowed to enter the lab.
Electric Circuits Lab Experiments
Students must purchase their own lab equipment that consists of an Arduino Kit and a Multimeter. There are also lab kits available to loan from the Alexandria campus Library.
- Crenova Multimeter or equivalent. If you are not using the Crenova Multimeter, you must make sure you have alligator clip wires such as these.
- A small electronic screwdriver to place the battery inside the multimeter. Any type will work as long as it is small enough to fit. Here are some examples: Type 1 or Type 2
