Shahabuddin, M. Formerly of the Department of Physics. Giasuddin Ahmad Ph. Dhcrka IrIAF. Pass and Subsidiary and B. In this textbook attempts have been made to guide the students so that they may proceed to record data systematically and then correlate them to get the results. At the end of each experiment relevent questions and their answers harre been provided, thus clarilying the theoretical aspect of the experiment. Hor,vever, it should be remembered that they are purely suggestive and there is nothing special about any particular form of tl-bulation.

Tables of physical constants and logarithmic and trigonometrical tables have been provided at the end of the book for ready reference. In writlng this book we consulted different books on practical physics specially those by Watson.

University of Engineering and Techonlogr, Dacca, for hts keen interest in the 6ook an? We also like to thank our Art. Asadullah Khan. We gratefully acknowledge the debt we owe to Mr. Nurul Momen. Dac , M. Columbia for many valuable and constructive suggestions.

We also like to thank Mr. Zoberi and pearl for his active co-operation in bringing out this book. Thanks are also due to Mr. Anwar Ali of the Department of physics rvho helped us in getting the manuscript typed within a short time. The book has been hurried through the press and as such some printing mistakes might have crept in inspite of our best efforts.

In performing an experiment in the laboratory, one is required to revise thororrghly t. Thus practical classes serve as a sor[ of revision exercises of the theoretical lectures. Moreorrer, laboratory work n-lakes a student methodical, accurate, diligent and trained to rules of discipline. The overall aims of the physics practical programme are to help the students learn a to experiment i.

Measurement of these quantities involves various errors which are enumerated below. This is due to the personal qualities of the workers. For example, different time keepers in a sport are found to record different times o[ start ancl finish. Inexperienced observers or observers not in a normal state of health make errors of varying magnitude. Such errors may be eliminated by taking mean o[ several observations.

In determining the value of g by simple pendulum. Such errors are eliminated by different methods. Thus, these e. Exanrples of these errors are the zero-error in measuring instruments such as screw gauge, slide callipers, end-errors in a meter bridge etc. In determining specific heat of solid or Iiquid by the method of mixture, the loss of heat by radiation is allwed to occur and then this loss is corrected for.

Thus in an experiment with meter bridge in finding the null point, a tapping error is introduced owing to the fact that the pointer which indicates the position is not exactly situated above the fine edge of the jockey which makes contact with the bridge wire. This is eliminated by obtaining two balance points after interchanging the resistance coils. Inspite of all corrections and precautions taken against all possible known causes, some errors due to unknown causes occur which affect the observations.

Such errors are called accidental errors. Errors in such cases are reduced by taking a number of observations and finding their mean. Due to carelessness in this respect an error in reading is inevitable' This error in.

In order to avoid such errors the scale' straight or circular, is often placed over a mirror' An image of the objecL is formed in the mirror by reflection and the reading of the object is taken wi[hout ditticulty' 0 Level Errors: Instruments like a balance' spectrorfrEGr,-difficle etc, require levelling before use.
