Practical Physics


    THE course of practical physics described in this book, which is based on manuscript notes used in the Cavendish Laboratory, covers the first year's work of the average student preparing for Part 1 of the Natural Sciences Tripos. Most of the experiments are simpler than those performed in the following year, which are unfortunately only partially described in Dr. Searle's text-books. The short introductory section contains valuable general instructions, and the book will be particularly valued by those teachers of physics who have had the privilege of passing through Mr. Bedford's class.
