Physics is the study of nature which is demonstrated at Engineering Physics Laboratory. Engineering Physics Laboratory imparts the necessary theoretical knowledge and technical skill for all the budding Engineers of TITE to handle the precision tools and electronic gadgets there by lying the foundation stone for the future technocrats in the practice of their professions. The basic focus in the Engineering Physics Laboratory is to develop scientific temper and encourage students to innovate in diverse technical areas for better understanding of technical and engineering problems.
Students will attend labs where they will see principle of Physics in action. The Engineering Physics Laboratory is well ventilated having a floor area of 175 m2 inclusive of a separate dark room for the optical experiments. There is ample provision of steel almirah and iron racks for safe storage of the equipments.The experiments prescribed by BPUT have been carefully planned in cycles so that maximum 2 to 3 students can conduct a single experiments in given period. Multiplicity of gadgets is avoided ensuring maximum resource utilization. The dark room of the physics lab is well equipped to conduct optical experiments.
Experiment set-ups are available in the department for laboratory work to substantiate the theory that is being taught in the class during 1st/2nd semesters as per the BPUT syllabus. It is equipped with all the apparatus required as per the BPUT curriculum. Adequate number of sets of each experiment is available so as to accommodate 30 students at a time in the laboratory. Each group is guided by a team of two faculty members, one laboratory assistant and one laboratory attendant.
In Physics laboratory we have various physics instruments like-
1. Searle’s apparatus
2. Surface tension Kit
3. Traveling Microscopes
4. Bar Pendulum
6. Lee’s Disc Apparatus
7. Newton’s Ring Apparatus
9. Junction Diode Kit
11. Transistor Characteristics Kit
12. RC Circuit Kit
13. Optical Bench
14. Plank’s Constant Apparatus
15. Modulus of Rigidity Apparatus
16. Hall Effect kit
A comprehensive demonstration is carried out by the faculty members for each experiment to help the students in better understanding of the experimental procedure and the theoretical concepts required to perform that experiment. Besides, in every practical class there is a viva-voce test of the concerned experiment to asses the understanding of the students.
As per BPUT curriculum, We conduct the following experiments in our lab.
1. Determination of Young’s modulus of steel wire by Searle’s methods.
2. Determination of surface tension of water by capillary rise method.
3. Determination of acceleration due to gravity by Bar pendulum.
4. Determination of thermal conductivity of a bad conductor by Lee’s method.
5. Determination of wave length of light of light by Newton’s ring apparatus.
6. Determination of grating element of a diffraction grating.
7. Plotting of characteristic curves of a PN junction diode.
8. Verification of laws of vibration of strings using Sonometer.
9. Plotting of characteristic curves of BJT.
10. Study of RC circuit.
Apart from the above, provision exists to conduct the following experiments.
1. Determination of Rigidity modulus by static methods.
2. Determination of wavelength of laser source by diffraction grating methods.
3. Study of Hall Effect.
4. Study of a Photoemission.
In addition to afore mentioned regular assignments, Engineering Physics Laboratory is actively engaged in research, development and project preparation activities at TITE. This vibrant research benefits the engineering students as professors bring the excitement of their front line research into the classroom. Many undergraduate projects are associated with this research hub.
