Abstract [en]

The goal of this project was to design an experimental study for students studying the course Classical Physics at KTH. In order to understand what the new labs needed to improve upon a survey investigation was conducted amongst the students studying this year's course on Classical Physics. The new study is planned to replace the current "RL-labben" and thus will focus on the area of electromagnetism. The central equipment was chosen to be a commercial induction cooker with which the students will investigate several electromagnetic phenomena. The lab instructions were divided into three sections, where the first and the third section dealt with physical understanding of the equipment and the second part handled lab data analysis. The results from the survey investigation showed that pupils wished to see clearer lab instructions and more preparatory exercises, amongst other points. The evaluation of the project mentioned some issues with the survey investigation as well as strengths and weaknesses of the laboratory study.
