PREFACE

Physics has played a major role in the development of science and technology during the years. It

covers a wide range of phenomena, from the smallest sub-atomic particles to the largest galaxies. It

is the study of matter and energy and the interaction between them. Practical physics has applications

in the fields of engineering, medicine, technology etc. In practical physics the student obtain

laboratory skills, design experiments and apply instrumentation such as electronic circuits to observe

and measure natural phenomena.

To master the science of physics practical one needs to have a complete and thorough knowledge of

all the experiments involved. Hence we bring to you Std. XI Sci. : PHYSICS PRACTICAL

HANDBOOK which covers all the experiments of Std XI. This handbook is writtern according to

the syllabus. It includes different sets of experiments with proper steps and neat and labelled

diagrams. These experiments help the student to understand the practical applications of many

principles and laws involved in Std. XI. The handbook also includes all the useful tables given at the

end.

And lastly, we would like to thank all those who have helped us in preparing this book. There is

always room for improvement and hence we welcome all suggestions and regret any errors that may

have occurred in the making of this book.

A book affects eternity; one can never tell where its influence stops.

Yours faithfully

TARGET Publications General Instructions

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

1. Before performing the experiment read the experiment at home carefully and take out the

points on which you want the clarification from the teacher.

2. Before actually performing an experiment student should know clearly what do determine and

by which method.

3. The necessary theory to know the limitations of the method and approximations used in

formula should be read.

4. The working table must be clean and apparatus should be placed in such a manner that the part

which are to be read or adjusted lie at convenient distance to make the observations.

5. The apparatus must be handled with great care.

6. Read all the precautions before performing the experiment.

7. Before writing down any final observation, take some trial readings and find out the range you

are going to cover. Divide the range into equal parts according to the number of readings you

are going to take.

8. Since all the measurements are affected by errors of observations repeat your observations at

least three times for the same quantity and take the mean value. Sometimes it happens that one

of the observed values differs widely from the rest. Reject that value.

9. The proper units to the measured quantity, should be written.

10. Writing of observations on loose sheets should be strictly avoided. The observations should be

recorded in the practical note book. There should be no over writing.

11. Always bring compass box, sharpened pencil, eraser, hand book in the Laboratory.

12. Calculations for all observations neatly and with the help of logarithmic tables. Write the result

with the proper units.

i. Volume of a sphere = r

Where r is radius of sphere

ii. Volume of cylinder = R2h

Where R is radius of cylinder and h is height of cylinder.

Procedure:

i. Note down the value of one division of main scale (X) and number of divisions on vernier

scale (N). Hence find out least count of vernier callipers (See diagram - 1).

ii. Find zero error of vernier callipers (See diagrams 2, 3, 4).

iii. To measure the diameter and hence radius of sphere, place the given sphere between the two

jaws of the vernier callipers. Care should be taken that undue pressure on the sphere is

avoided.

iv. Observe the zero of the vernier scale. It lies between two successive readings of the main

scale. The lesser reading is the main scale reading (M.S.R.) a

v. Now count the division of vernier scale which coincides with any of the division of main scale.

This coinciding division of vernier scale is vernier scale division (V.S.D.) n. Multiply n by

least count of vernier callipers to obtain the value of vernier scale reading. This is b and it is

b = n least count.

vi. The total reading is the sum of main scale reading a and vernier scale reading b. This total

reading gives the diameter of the sphere.

vii. Repeat the procedure (iv) to (vi) five times by rotating the sphere to get diameter at different

places. Hence mean diameter and radius can be found out.

viii. Place the cylinder between the two jaws of the vernier callipers. Repeat the procedure (iv) to

(vii). Find out inner diameter and hence radius of the cylinder.

ix. Measure the height of the cylinder by meter scale.

x. Apply zero correction due to zero error for every reading.

Observations:

i. Value of the smallest division on main scale (X) = .. cm

ii. Number of divisions on vernier scale (N) = div

Precautions:

i. While holding object in the jaws, do not exert undue pressure on it. The jaws should just touch

the object.

ii. Take number of readings at different positions of the sphere as well as cylinder.

iii. The upper jaws should just touch the inner diameter of hollow cylinder.

iv. The coinciding division of vernier scale should be taken accurately, if required magnifying

glass can be used.

TARGET Publications Use of Micrometer screw gauge

Formula:

Cross-sectional area of wire A = r2

Where r = radius of cross section of wire.

Procedure:

i. Find out the distance (X) through which screw travels on the main scale in five rotations of the

circular scale. Hence distance travelled by the circular scale in one rotation is called the pitch

of the screw.

ii. Note down the number of divisions on the circular scale. Hence knowing pitch, L.C. (Least

count) of the screw can be determined (See diagram - 1).

iii. Find out zero error of micrometer screw. This can be found out as follows:

When the two jaws of micrometer screw gauge are brought in contact with each other without

applying undue pressure, the zero on the circular scale should coincide with the reference line

on main scale. If this happens there is no zero error (See diagram - 2). If this is not observed

then the micrometer screw has zero error.

There are two possibilities

a. Zero of circular scale is above the reference line:

When zero of the circular scale is above the reference line as shown in diagram - 3, then

zero error is negative. Count the divisions from zero of circular scale coinciding with

reference line (m). Negative sign is for negative error. The value of zero error can be

found out by multiplying it by least count. [(m) L.C.]

b. Zero of circular scale is below the reference line:

When zero of the circular scale is below the reference line as shown in diagram - 4, then

zero error is positive. The division of circular scale coinciding with reference line is

noted (+m). Positive sign is for positive error. The value of zero error can be found out

by multiplying it by least count. [+(m) L.C.]

Note that any micrometer screw gauge apparatus can have one and only one possibility out of

the three i.e. no zero error, negative zero error and positive zero error. Also zero error is

related to the apparatus.

iv. Hold the wire, between the two jaws of micrometer screw gauge, whose diameter is to be

found out without applying undue pressure. Note down the reading of the main scale (M.S.R.)

or pitch scale (P.S.R.). This is a.

v. Note down the circular scale reading coinciding with reference line. This is C.S.D. (n).

Multiply this by L.C. to obtain circular scale reading (C.S.R.).

vi. The total reading (T) can be found out by adding main scale reading and circular scale reading

i.e. T = a + b.

vii. To obtain correct reading, zero error which is found out in procedure (iii) is subtracted from

total reading. Thus correct reading of the diameter is obtained.

viii. Five readings of the diameter of the wire are taken by using procedure (iv) to (vii). Hence

mean corrected diameter of the wire can be found out.

ix. To find the thickness of the metal plate (or glass plate) instead of the wire, glass or metal plate

is held between the jaws of the micrometer screw gauge. The procedure (iv) to (viii) is

repeated, resulting in mean thickness of the plate (metal or glass).

mean thickness of the plate can be found out.

Result:

i. Diameter of wire = . cm

ii. Thickness of the plate (metal or glass) = . cm

TARGET Publications Use of Micrometer screw gauge

Precautions:

i. Do not apply undue pressure while turning micrometer screw.

ii. Take number of independent readings by holding the wire in different positions.

iii. Minimise the blacklash error by rotating the screw always in the same direction while taking

readings.
