- Read Me: About Labs in Physics 9
- This section provides an explanation of what is expected from students in the laboratory portion of Physics 9.

- Lab 1: Static Electric Charge
- An exploration of the world of static electricity.

- Lab 2: Electrostatic Potential
- We use measurements of electric potential between two cylindrical conductors to determine the radial dependence of an electric field with cylindrical symmetry.

- Lab 3: Capacitors
- We explore properties of capacitance in a static circuit, including the dependence of capacitance on the geometry of the conductors, the energy stored in the electric field, and the effect of the presence of a dielectric.

- Lab 4: DC Circuits
- We use properties of resistors in series and parallel and Kirchhoff's rules to analyze DC networks, including power supplied by a battery and emitted by light bulbs.

- Lab 5: RC Circuits
- We have a look at the time evolution of a circuit where the charge on a capacitor is drained-off through a resistor.

- Lab 6: Magnetism
- We bring together tools we have learned from mechanics, magnetism, and graphical data analysis to compute the Earth's magnetic field strength, using a very simple apparatus.

- Lab 7: Electromagnetic Induction
- We examine Faraday's law using a coil through which we pass a time-varying current (producing a time-varying magnetic field), and a second coaxial coil in which we measure the induced emf.

- Lab 8: Inductance
- We measure the voltage as a function of time through an inductor in a circuit with resistance, and use a best-fit graph to determine its inductance.
