Astronomy Lab

Preferred browser : Internet Edge on WindowsChoose 3 experiments from the , explore experiments, write 3 lab reports, answering questions given for each applet . Format of lab report you can see in Lab report example.( applets simulation screen shots should be included into lab report )You can find some tips how to write a good lb report on following link:After clicking on applet it may ask to install flash plugin. You should agree and install. Different applets may need different plugins.I am grading quality of answers to questions given for each experiment.Please follow the format of provided example for lab report.Based on some theoretical knowledge (that you put into report) you should draw some predictions and based on data taken from simulator (please provide screen shots) you should shape your data into tables and graph plots.All available animations ( animations ( works on chromeand in conclusion discuss, if your predictions are confirmed by experiment.You should write different reports, separate for each experiment, but they could be combined in the same file.
