A laboratory manual for high schools, colleges, and universities. The second edition contains more than 140 experiments and demonstrations presented in ten chapters: Introductory Experiments (30), Mechanics (11), Molecular Physics (11), Electricity and Magnetism (13), Optics and Atomic Physics (12), Condensed Matter Physics (11), Semiconductors (10), Applied Physics (11), Nobel Prize Experiments (10), and Student Projects (25). All the experiments are illustrated through the results of real measurements. New experiments developed by the author in 2007a€“2014 are added to this edition.

Keywords:Physics and Engineering Education;Laboratory Manual;Data AcquisitionReviews: Reviews of the First Edition: a€œa€bYaakov Kraftmakhera€b has written a nearly encyclopedic book containing 88 experiments and demonstrations that he has developed, adapted, or refined for his universitya€b Kraftmakher's book is a truly impressive work, with something for everyonea€b And it is especially helpful to those who already use PASCO equipment.a€ Julien C Sprott, Physics Today, March 2008 a€œa€bI would recommend this book for any one setting up labs for an undergraduate program for physics majors. These experiments should be an excellent preparation for a career involving experimental physicsa€b Many of these experiments would serve well as a source of ideas for undergraduate research projectsa€ba€ Richard M Fuller, Amazon Reviews, 27 April 2008 a€œa€bThe demonstrations are broken up into chapters covering different aspects of physics, fairly typically. The chapter on Nobel Prize experiments is a little unusual, but quite impressive. Each experiment has notes on how to do it, diagrams and photos in black and white, and a chunk of relevant scientific theorya€ba€ Gary Williams, Physics Education, May 2008The anode current during the deionization process reflects the ion-electron recombination in the tube (Fig. 6).
