Laboratory Experiments in Physics for Modern Astronomy: With Comprehensive Development of the Physical Principles (Hardback)Leslie M. Golden (author)
- We can order this
This book presents experiments which will teach physics relevant to astronomy. The astronomer, as instructor, frequently faces this need when his college or university has no astronomy department and any astronomy course is taught in the physics department. The physicist, as instructor, will find this intellectually appealing when faced with teaching an introductory astronomy course. From these experiments, the student will acquire important analytical tools, learn physics appropriate to astronomy, and experience instrument calibration and the direct gathering and analysis of data. Experiments that can be performed in one laboratory session as well as semester-long observation projects are included.

From the reviews:
"This textbook is different from many others in the field. ... It was written to help students of astronomy to understand physics concepts in practical lab work. ... I fully recommend this book. ... The book's content is suitable for many undergraduate physics courses where the content has reference to astronomy. As such, I recommend the book as very good supplementary material." (Michael Vollmer, Physics Education, July, 2013)
"...I fully recommend this book. I learned or rediscovered quite a bit of interesting astronomy and I particularly liked the short descriptions of the physics background for the chosen activities." -Michael Volmer, Physics Education July 2013
