Organization of the Experimental Physics Course at the Pedagogical University
Principles of organization of the experimental physics course at the
Physics Department of the Novosibirsk State Pedagogical University are
considered. Basic directions of the theoretical course, laboratory equipment,
and experiments carried out by students are described.
Methodical Aspects of Using of Electronic Education Environments for
General Physics Teaching in Engineering Faculties
Approaches to development of the general physics electronic educational
environment and methodical features of its using at the organization
of self work and e-learning for engineering faculties are stated.
Conceptual Aspects of Problem Oriented Education in the Physics Course
On the basis of the problem oriented education offered by the Department
of General Physics at Tomsk Polytechnical University the main principles
of teaching materials have been discussed and developed for this education
to deliver the Physics Course.
New Molecular Physics Laboratory on General Physics Course
We present here the report on the modern status of the molecular physics
laboratory at Belarusian State University. The equipment for practical
works is described.
Universal Laboratory Training Complex for Nuclear Spectrometry
The universal automatized training set up designed for fulfillment of a set of nuclear spectrometry laboratory works is described. The summaries of 10 laboratory works are given.
Linear Charge Coupled Devices in Atomic Junior Laboratory of Physical
Faculty of Moscow State University
The experience of using of photosensitive charge coupled devices in optical
division of student educational laboratory on atomic physics for the
students of 3-d course of physical faculty of Moscow State University.
The Laboratory Work on the Definition of the Wave Length and the Generator
UHF by Means of Lecher Wires
The paper is dealt with the peculiar features of the improved laboratory
work on the investigation of electric waves of Lecher line. The complete
engineering data of the equipment are given that allows reproducing it
within the university experimental workshops.
The Lecture Demonstrations of Nonlinear Effects
in Surface Waves on Water
The installation, which makes it possible to demonstrate the nonlinear
transformation of waves and their spectra on the liquid surface, is described.
The change of wave profile may be watched visually or, more precisely,
on the screen of monitor by means of electrical registration of the oscillations.
The "virtual" analysators are used for signal processing.
Laboratory Work "Mossbauer Effect"
Student laboratory work "Mossbauer Effect" is done on the basis of computer
modeling of a real experiment. The set up consists of the experimental
device (the model of the Mossbauer spectrometer) and a computer. A student
can carry out all steps of the Mossbauer experiment: to tune the spectrometer,
to record pulse height spectra and Mossbauer spectra and to make least
square fitting of the data. The lab gives an introduction to the basic
types of hyperfine interactions. Isomer shift and line shape are studied.
The methodology of nuclear Zeeman Effect is considered for a-Fe Mossbauer
absorber as example.
Computer Modeling of a Rattleback
Properties of a non-symmetrical hyroscope, a rattleback, are discussed.
A modeling algorithm is presented and results of numerical experiments,
that appear to be quite close to those performed with real rattlebacks,
are analyzed. Numerical experiments performed employing the presented
algorithms are recommended to accompany lecture demonstrations of a rattleback.
Computer Practice in Distance Education System
Results of computer laboratory works and testing on physics and electrotechnics on students studying in branches of university "Dubna" and Moscow State Institute of Radiotechnics, Electronics and Automatics are submitted. The program support of Distance Education Systemic carried out with the help of the educational programs developed in university "Dubna". The programs for testing and practical work are placed on server of university "Dubna", that allows to organize remote training.
