Continuing the topic discussed in class, research the determination of
the physical constant or quantity assigned to you, and be prepared to
present your results to the class.
Include the accuracy of the values obtained.
As usual, prepare a report to hand in.
If you do not understand a method you find mentioned, do additional
research until you do understand the details. You should be able to
describe to the class, in broad outline, what tools or devices are needed to
make the measurements, and, for original measurements,
how these tools could be constructed.
