Experimental Elasticity: A Manual for the Laboratory
by G.F.C. Searle
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1908
Number of pages: 220
G. F. C. Searle (1864-1954) was a British physicist who made notable contributions to the development of laboratory physics and theories of electromagnetic mass. First published in 1933, as the second edition of a 1908 original, this book was based on the manuscript notes prepared by Searle for the use of students attending his practical physics classes at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge.

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.

These web documents contain supplementary material for laboratory work in the introductory physics course. They provide a point of view which some laboratory manuals lack. A large part of this material commonly goes by the name 'error analysis'.

This is a set of lectures presented at the Theoretical Advanced Study Institute 2009. I provide an introduction to experiments designed to detect WIMP dark matter directly, focusing on building intuitive understanding of the potential WIMP signals.
