Advanced Physics Practicals: with 3D Simulations (Paperback)
This book describes 28 Physics practicals at advanced level and beyond. There's background information on each one, a description of the equipment needed and how the experiment is performed. Uniquely, for those without access to a real laboratory, this book comes with free access to highly detailed 3d simulations of all the experiments. These are the same as in the Virtual Physics Laboratory as reviewed and given the Green Tick by the Association for Science Education. They don't just give ideal results, they need to be done well to get good results. For the school or university student who wants to improve and widen his/her knowledge of Physics to those that are learning on their own, this is a perfect book for honing experimental skills.
Rob Lucas has worked in and around education for forty years. As well as teaching at university undergraduate and postgraduate level, he has created many software products for teaching. These include TOM, the Thoroughly Obedient Moron which is a computer simulator for Windows, the Virtual Language Laboratory which was the first multimedia language lab that used a PC network, and many science 3d simulations.
