PDF Version

The manual is available in two slightly different flavors. The only difference is whether hyperlinks and certain text appears colored or in black-and-white. The black-and-white version is better for printing; the colored version better for on-screen use.

A short video introduces each of the experiments of Physics 53 after the first. These videos are in MP4 format and can be viewed in any player that handles this format, including a QuickTime player. Each is approximately 5 minutes in length. You must preview the video before arriving in the laboratory for the first session with that experiment.
