**Course objectives**- Acquaintance of students with the basic principles of electric and magnetic fields as part of practical measurements
**Learning outcomes**- After completing the course, the student will be able to: - build a simple direct current circuit and measure the basic electrical quantities on the resistor using both dial and digital measuring devices and verify the validity of Kirchhoff's laws - measure the electrical resistance of a resistor using different methods - connect and measure the galvanometer as a voltmeter and an ammeter; change the range of the relevant measuring instrument - determine the electromotive voltage of the primary cell, determine its internal resistance - verify the relations for the work of electric current - connect basic AC circuits with RLC elements and verify their characteristics - determine the basic characteristics of the capacitor - determine the basic characteristics of the coil - measure the basic quantities describing the magnetic field of a direct conductor, a coil and the Earth - measure Planck's constant from the photoelectric effect - measure the Hall constant of a semiconductor
**Syllabus**- Measurement of basic quantities. Measurement of voltage, current, resistance, power and frequency; verification of Kirchhoff's laws.
- Calibration of the measuring device with a laboratory device; determination of the internal resistance of the meter; changing the ammeter and voltmeter range.
- Measurement of resistance by deflection methods.
- Bridge circuits.
- The principle of voltage and current compensation and its use for determining the electromotive voltage of the primary cell.
- Work of electric current; verification of the relationship between quantities describing direct current and alternating current (electrical calorimeter); gradation of the ammeter with a coulomb meter for hydrogen.
