Student Course Evaluation (PHY-111L Applied Physics Section A)
The course objectives were clear
The Course workload was manageable
The Course was well organized (e.g. timely access to materials, notification of changes, etc.)
I participated actively in the Course.
I think I have made progress in this Course
I think the Course was well structured to achieve the learning outcomes (there was a good balance of lectures, tutorials, practical etc.)
The learning and teaching methods encouraged participation
The overall environment in the class was conducive to learning.
Classrooms were satisfactory
Learning materials (Lesson Plans, Course Notes etc.) were relevant and useful.
Recommended reading Books etc. were relevant and appropriate
The provision of learning resources in the library was adequate and appropriate
The provision of learning resources on the Web was adequate and appropriate ( if relevant)
Students will be able to measure the Hall voltage and Hall coefficient as a function of current and magnetic induction. Students will also learn how to measure the voltage and current across the given semiconductor for varying temperature. They will be able to find out the band gap energy of Germanium.
Students will be able to determine the capacitance of a metallic sphere by conduction method. The student will also come to know about the effect of dimensions of metallic spheres on the capacitance. The students will also learn to determine the dielectric constant of air/vacuum and the dielectric constant of plastic relative to air.
The students will be able to find the resistance of different materials and components as a function of temperature. The students will observe the formation of standing waves on a given thread and can calculate the frequency of A.C. mains by counting the number of loops formed by varying the tension in the thread.
Students will be able to determine e/m (specific charge) of electrons by deflection method. The students will also be able to draw the B-H curve to study the magnetic properties of ferromagnetic material.
