This book is intended for the assistance of Students and Teachers in Physical Laboratories. Our general aim in the book has been to place before the reader a description of a course of experiments which shall not only enable him to obtain a practical acquaintance with methods of measurement, but also as far as possible illustrate the more important principles of the various subjects.

G. F. C. Searle made notable contributions to the development of laboratory physics and theories of electromagnetic mass. This book was based on the notes prepared by Searle for his practical physics classes at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge.

A particular Bayesian field theory is defined by combining a likelihood model, providing a probabilistic description of the measurement process, and a prior model, providing the information necessary to generalize from training to non-training data.
Contents: Fizeau-Foucault apparatus; Ives-Stilwell experiment; Oxford Electric Bell; Roemer's determination of the speed of light; Sagnac effect; Trouton-Noble experiment; De Sitter double star experiment; Atwood machine; Barton's pendulums; etc.

These experiments should form part of a physics course which includes class discussions and demonstrations. They were used for several years in a beginners' course in practical physics. The materials and procedure have been worked out in detail.
