Labs for the Physics 1500 and 1600 Series



Printing using the Auburn University Physics Lab printers may result in your Bursar's Account being charged 50 cents ($0.50) per page.

The appropriate lab procedure must be printed and brought to lab each week.  Printing the procedures using the lab room printers will not be allowed.
