A Laboratory Manual for Introductory Physics
by Donald E. Simanek
Publisher: Lock Haven University 1998
Number of pages: 132
These web documents contain supplementary material for laboratory work in the introductory (first year) physics course. They provide an emphasis and point of view which some laboratory manuals lack. A large part of this material commonly goes by the name 'error analysis'.

This volume is intended for students who, having obtained an elementary knowledge of experimental work in Physics, desire to become acquainted with the principles and methods of accurate measurement. This book is published in 1901.
Contents: Fizeau-Foucault apparatus; Ives-Stilwell experiment; Oxford Electric Bell; Roemer's determination of the speed of light; Sagnac effect; Trouton-Noble experiment; De Sitter double star experiment; Atwood machine; Barton's pendulums; etc.

A particular Bayesian field theory is defined by combining a likelihood model, providing a probabilistic description of the measurement process, and a prior model, providing the information necessary to generalize from training to non-training data.
- Lea and Blanchard
A collection of experiments in various branches of science, including acoustics, electricity, magnetism, arithmetic, hydraulics, mechanics, chemistry, hydrostatics, optics, the air-pump, all the popular tricks and changes of the cards, etc.
