ISC PHYSICS PRACTICAL INSTRUCTIONS

The most important instruction comes first. So please remember that a lot of money, time, thought and energy have

been spent in procuring and maintaining all of the instruments that you are using in the lab. It may be easy to misuse

one of those instruments and give money for the damage. But getting the same quality instrument that too in India is

very difficult. So please take care of them like your own, with utmost care and hence save it for the generations of

students to come.

Always FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS For ISC, you dont always need to know why something is done; you only

need to learn how it is done. So, remember that when your teacher tells you to do certain things it is always for a very

clear reason that may not be explained to you always. But there is always a reason. Mostly the reasons will be scientific

in nature and beyond the scope of the syllabus and your understanding for now. You are free to ask why something is

the way it is, but remember that if you don't want to, that's just fine you still have to follow the instructions.

You are only tested in your ability to do the experiment as accurately and precisely as possible, as instructed in the

question paper and on your ability to present the observations, calculations and results of your experimentation.

Read and prepare the experiment that you have to do before coming for the lab session. This means drawing the tabular

columns, writing the Aim Apparatus etc and coming ready to do the experiment in the observation book. Dont waste

time in the lab doing all this as it could be spent more productively on just doing the experiment with a lot of care

accuracy and precision which will improve not only your marks but also your scientific and experimental temperament

and skills. You may want to think of the Theory behind each of the experiments that you do, that is a direct application

of all that you learn in your theory classes.

You have two books in which all the written work will be done. One is called the OBSERVATION BOOK, which is

just a simple graph note book. Bring this to every lab session. Without this book, coming to the lab is meaningless.

Record all your observations, comments, readings etc in this book. After you have finished an experiment and got the

signature of your teacher, you are free to write the experiment into your fair RECORD NOTE BOOK.

The Record Notebook should be written neatly in blue or black ink and all diagrams drawn in pencil. It should contain

the following entries in the order given below

2. The Experiment Number (in the margin)

3. Date on which the Experiment was conducted (in the margin)

4. Aim of the experiment

5. Apparatus used in the experiment

6. An account of the Theory behind the experiment (if given and required)

7. Formulae used for calculations, explaining every term with units

8. Detailed account of Procedure and description of apparatus

9. Result

2. Tabular columns containing all the observations with appropriate units.

3. All calculations done, clearly and elaborately, in order to reach the final result.

4. Graphs drawn with proper axis marked and scales mentioned.

You are free to write the procedure in your own words if you please. However, the procedure already given, will give

you a clear idea as to how to go about doing the experiment.

Your Record Book carries 3 Marks for the final exam and the experiment that you do carries 20 Marks. Your Project

carries 7 marks. This total of 30 Marks is very easy to get if you are systematic and follow instructions.

Most importantly, as you must with everything you do in your life, do enjoy doing your practicals!!!

EXPERIMENT 1: CONVEX LENSES I

DISTANT OBJECT METHOD & U-V METHOD

Aim: To determine the focal length of a given convex lens by distant object method and u v method

and graphical method

Apparatus: Given a Convex Lens, a 100 cm optic bench, two pins, a lens stand and a white screen.

Least count of the optic bench is _______ = _______ .

Procedure:

1. Distant Object Method: Fix the lens on the lens stand and make sure that the lens is perfectly

vertical to the optic bench. Use plasticine if necessary to keep the lens from moving. Arrange the

screen and the given convex lens on the optic bench such that the surface of the screen is

coinciding with the zero of the optic bench. Now move the lens to and fro from the screen till you

get a sharp image of any distant object on the screen. At this position, the distance between the

lens and the screen will equal the focal length (1 ) of the lens. Take care to ensure that the distant

object being focused is as far away as possible and in line with the principal axis.

2. U V method: Arrange the Screen, the Object pin (O), the lens (L) and the image pin (I) on the

optic bench in that order. Keep the object pin such that it coincides with the zero mark of the optic

bench. Keep the Lens such that the object distance (u) is about 20 to 30 cm. Keeping this fixed,

move the image pin to and from the lens till there is no parallax between the image of the object

and the image pin. At this position, note the values of object distance (u) and image distance (v).

Record the values in a table form and also calculate the value of focal length using the formula

= []

+

Now, repeat the experiment about 5 times by increasing the value of object position (u) by 3 to 5

cm and for each value, adjusting the value of image distance (v) such that the parallax is removed.

For each set of us and vs, find the value of focal length (f). Find the mean value of focal length.

Graphs: Plot the following graphs

a) v/s graph: The graph will be a curve in the first quadrant. Make sure that the scales are

same on both the graphs and there is no kink used. Draw a straight line 45 to the positive x

axis such that it touches the curve. Take the corresponding values of v and u were it touches

the curve and use that to find the value of F using the equation given above.

b) 1/ v/s 1/ graph: The graph will be a straight line with negative slope. Make sure that the

scales are same on both the graphs and there is no kink used. Find the line of best fit and find

0 the intercept and 0 the y intercept. The reciprocal of 0 and 0 gives you the value of

focal length in cm.

c) vs v graph: The graph will be a straight line with positive slope. Draw the line of best fit and

find the slope of the graph. The reciprocal of the slope will give you the value of focal length

in cm.

Results:

The approximate focal length of the convex lens using distant object method is 1 = ____ cm.

The mean value of focal length from the v and u data is found to be =_____ cm

The focal length of the given convex lens from v/s graph is found to be _______ cm.

Procedure: First, determine the approximate focal length (1 ) of the given convex lens using distant object method. Now

arrange the object pin (O) and the image pin (I) on the optic bench such that the distance between them is about 10cm

greater than 4. Let this distance OI be 41 . The distance between I and O () should not be changed during the

following setting.

Now position the lens in between I and O and move the lens towards the object pin O till you find another no parallax

position in between the two pins where the image of I is real, inverted and magnified. Let this position be L 1 . Note this

position down in the tabular column. Now without changing the the distance IO (= ), move it towards the image pin I till

you find a no parallax position. The image of the pin here will be real inverted and diminished. Let this position be L 2 .

Note this position in the tabular column. Let = 1 ~2 . Note this also in the table.

Repeat the experiment to get 4 more sets of values of L 1 , L 2 and d increasing the value of each time by about 4 to 6 cm.

For each setting, calculate the value of (up to 3 significant figures) and 2 using the formula

Draw a graph of versus plotting the five sets of values and draw a line of best fit. Find the slope of this line (S). Hence

find the focal length of the lens using the formula = 25

Procedure:

Keep the object pin at the zero mark and make sure it remains there throughout the experiment. All readings of position

should be taken in centimeters. Make sure that the tip of both the object and image pins and the center of both the lenses

coincide.

Place the convex lens at a convenient position (L) on the optic bench till you can see an inverted image of the pin on the

other side. Now place the image pin on the bench and adjust its position till there is no parallax between the image of the

object pin and the image pin. Note down the position of the convex lens (L) and the image pin (A).

Now place the concave lens at a convenient position (C) in between the convex lens and the image pin. You will now see

that the position of the inverted image has shifted so adjust the position of the image pin till there is again no parallax

between the image of the object pin as seen through the combination of both the lenses and the image pin. Note down the

position of the concave lens (C) and the new position of the image pin (B).

Calculate the value of virtual object distance u = A C and image distance v = B C and hence find the focal length of

Repeat the experiment from the start by either changing the value of position either of the lenses L or C by a few

centimeters. Make sure you have an inverted image in each case. Note down the readings of L, A, C and B in each case and

calculate the corresponding value of F. Take the average value of focal length of all the readings.

figure. Keep the mirror such that it coincides with the zero mark of the optic bench. Keep the object pin (O)

such that the object distance (u) is about 30 cm. Keeping this fixed, move the image pin to and from the mirror

till there is no parallax between the image of the object (I) and the image pin (I). At this position, note the

Apparatus: Given a Potentiometer, sample wire used in the Meter Bridge, DC power supply, rheostat, key, ammeter,

voltmeter, jockey, and connecting wires

Least count of (i) Voltmeter = _____ V; (ii) Ammeter = _____ A (iii) Metre Bridge = _____ cm.

Theory: For any given resistance (R), the potential drop across it is given by ohms law, = . If we are talking about a

Resistance Wire of uniform circular area of cross section (A) and of a certain length, the formula can be amended as

follows

Introducing Potential Gradient () which is the Potential drop per unit length

of the wire the above equation can be we re-written as

i Current through the Resistance [A] Radius of the given wire [m]

R Resistance offered by the length of the wire [] Diameter of the given wire [m]

l Length of the wire resistance wire [m] Potential Gradient [V/m]

The experiment is set up to find the potential gradient of the given wire for a fixed value of current. The Specific resistance

of the wire can be found from the equation for .

[A] [V] [V/m]

Procedure:

2. Take care to ensure that all the connections are tight and the terminals of ammeter and voltmeter are correct (positive

of battery goes to positive of both ammeter and voltmeter).

3. Keep the rheostat at maximum value.

4. Include about 2V in the battery eliminator and insert the plug key.

5. Touch the jockey at end B of the Potentiometer AB and adjust the rheostat and/or voltage supply to maintain the

ammeter and voltmeter reading within range. For a more accurate result, it is better to get an almost full scale

deflection in the Voltmeter at this setting. So if required, increase the supply to 4V. Once the rheostat is fixed and a

constant current flowing through the circuit, make sure that this value of current is maintained constant throughout the

experiment.

6. Tap the jockey at the 10.0cm position (L) and note the Voltmeter reading (V). Record both in the tabular column.

7. Repeat step 6 nine times more, each time increasing the L value by 10.0cm

8. For each reading calculate the value of potential gradient ( = /). Find the mean value of all the readings.

9. Plot a graph of V versus l and draw a straight line of best fit and find its slope. The slope will again give you the

potential gradient ().

10. Using a screw gauge, find the diameter of the wire (d) using the sample wire given by taking diameter readings at

various positions. <you will have to draw a table for this too>

11. Use the value of current (i), potential gradient (slope of graph ) and diameter of the wire d obtained in the

experiments to find the value of specific resistance using the above formula.

EXPERIMENT 13: POST OFFICE BOX: FINDING UNKNOWN RESISTANCE

Aim: To find the value of unknown resistance using the principle of Wheatstones Bridge using a Post Office

Box

Apparatus: Given a post office box, an unknown resistance, a galvanometer, a battery eliminator and a few

connecting wires. Least count of Post Office Box is ______

Box is an instrument used to find

resistance to high accuracy values

using the principle of Wheatstones

bridge.

resistance arms of a Wheatstones

Bridge.

The Post Office Box apparatus itself consists of terminals for direct connection of battery eliminator (B)

galvanometer (G), unknown resistance (X), Press key for B and G and the three Resistances P,Q and R. While

the value of R can be chosen to be any whole number between 1 and 11,110 , P and Q are have only 3

values each 10 ,100 & 1000 . Together, P and Q are called the Ratio Arms in which P is the multiplier

and Q is the divider, the names derived directly from the equation for calculating X.

Procedure:

1. Set up the circuit as shown in the diagram. The circuit diagram may be used for comparison.

2. Keep the P knob at 10 .

3. Keep the Q knob at 10 .

4. Find that value of resistance in R for which the galvanometer just deflects to the left. Note this in the table.

5. Find that value of resistance in R for which the galvanometer just deflects to the right. Note this in the table.

6. Find the mean of the left and right values and note it in the table.

7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 by changing the value of Q each time.

8. Calculate the X value using the formula for all the 3 sets of values to the correct number of significant

figures.

9. The last reading when P = 10 and Q = 1000 is the final value.
