PH255: Lab manual / error analysis

The PH255 lab manual is a work in progress, but I will be keeping the current version online here. The lab manual includes the course syllabus and schedule.

You will need a password to access the PH255 lab manual (which I will give you in class today). It is annoying, but necessary for me to restrict access to class members due to my (temporary) use of copyrighted material.

You might also find the lab report templates useful, there will be more of these in the next week.

Also, an interesting introduction to error analysis, courtesy a UA Physics alum. His site is highly recommended, a lot of good physics discussions to be found.

Finally, some resources you might find useful. Not all of them will work at UA (we don't have subscriptions), but enough do that it is worth checking out. You may also want to have a look at the rest of the MIT 8.13-14 course content, there are some good laboratory procedures, explanations, and related documents. We'll be doing some of the same experiments in PH255.
