PHYS 3100: Intro to Modern Physics Lab

This guide is for students in PHYS 3100, who must look up background information on famous physics experiments.


This guide contains resources for finding books and articles on classic physics experiments, as well as online resources for looking up physical property data.

In class we will use a worksheet to guide our work. Please log in using your Bronco NetID.
