Safety Please wear covered shoes – NO SLIPPER. Otherwise, you will be asked to leave the lab. Power must be switched off whenever an experiment or project is being assembled, disassembled, or modified.
Tidiness When the experiment has been satisfactory completed and the results approved by the instructor, the students may disconnect the circuit and return the components and instruments to the locker tidily. Chairs are to be slid in properly. DO NOT WRITE anything on the table
Preparation Read the entire experiment and research any required theory beforehand. Many times an experiment takes longer that one class period simply because a student is not well prepared. The experiment is performed in pairs (max=3 students per group) but the final exam is performed individually – One group = one lab report
Lab Reports Reports have to be handwritten for submission. – Writing should appear on one side of each sheet only. – The students’ name & matric number, section number, lab session and the lecturer’s – Please indicate the author of each section in your report. The cover page of the lab report can be downloaded from the website.
