PHYS 1080 Labs – (no lab exemptions for previously completed labs)

Electronic lab sign-up is available on CourseLink and it is mandatory to create your personal lab schedule at the start of the semester as these sessions fill quickly. Each lab session is 90 minutes and is sufficient time to collect your data and complete the calculations provided you read over the material prior to attending. You can do these labs in any order and as early as possible but specific labs must be complete prior to attempting the related quiz.
