give you a very good idea of what to expect during a real experiment).
The Instructor's Manual is also available as a PDF
file (1.7Mbytes). (A note to students: We realize that instructor's
manuals hold a certain amount of intrigue for some students. Alas, this
manual doesn't contain any test questions, easy answers to your homework,
etc., but rather good discussions of the mechanics behind how to conduct
the experiments, and so forth. Students are welcome to read this document
as you may learn a few subtleties about the material in the different chapters.
However, the easiest way for you to understand the material and do well
on your homework is to focus your time and effort towards the chapters
contained in the student version of the book.)
In the Instructor's Manual you will find all of the materials you need
to copy and handout to the students for each experiment. We have collected
all of these materials and placed them in a PostScript file of distribution
materials or a
PDF file. (You will still
want the Instructor's Manual for the Capsule Instructions and Data Collection
