Hitchhiker's Guide to First Year Physics Labs at UCD

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 197

The book is intended to complement the University College Dublin first year laboratory manuals, but can also be read independently. The UCD labs span a wide range of subjects, and consequently so do the chapters of this book, beginning with experimental techniques, moving onto classical mechanics, touching on EM, and ending with a variety of more advanced topics.
