General Information

The purpose of Physics 106 is to enhance your understanding of the Mechanics concepts through hands-on experience in the laboratory and discussion. You will be observing and analyzing the Mechanics concepts as they are put into action in a computer-based format. The discussion sections will always precede the lab sections and are designed to give you the opportunity to discuss your conceptual understanding and problem solving skills while you practice solving problems with TA and other students.

All labs are in room SEL2280 except Exp 2: “Projectile Motion” which is located in room SEL2281.
