Astronomy and physics laboratory textbook for use by undergraduate students.

This book presents experiments which will teach physics relevant to astronomy. The astronomer, as instructor, frequently faces this need when his college or university has no astronomy department and any astronomy course is taught in the physics department. The physicist, as instructor, will find this intellectually appealing when faced with teaching an introductory astronomy course. From these experiments, the student will acquire important analytical tools, learn physics appropriate to astronomy, and experience instrument calibration and the direct gathering and analysis of data. Experiments that can be performed in one laboratory session as well as semester-long observation projects are included.

Human beings arrive at truth in four ways: Faith, authority, revelation, and observation. All other animals rely only upon authority, by observing adults, and observation, by, for example, tasting fruit or experiencing the changing of the seasons. Very few species other than Man, although they, too, may experience territorialism, practice genocide or wage organized war. This is perhaps a commentary on the truth-finding role of faith, authority, and revelation in our consciousness.

Reader Reviews for "Laboratory Experiments in Physics for Modern Astronomy"

Reviewed by David Hamilton 9/9/2012
I have had an interest in reading about astronomy subjects for quite some time. I think this book should be very helpful in providing students with an introduction into this area of science.
