This is predominantly an experimentally based subject. It builds upon the approach to experimentation introduced in the first year and provides a firm foundation for later experimental work. In particular, a focus is brought to methods of measurement and principles of data analysis of relevance to laboratory-based experimentation. The subject reinforces basic principles with practical applications drawn from various areas of applied physics. Open-ended, project-based experiments are a major feature of this subject, where experimental design, data analysis and faithful and accurate reporting are emphasised.
