This physics practical has been designed in such a way to make students develop some manipulative skills in handling some physics apparatus. It is an integral part of the physics course, which reinforces some, if not all, the principles, theories and concepts learnt in Mechanics, Thermal, Electricity, Wave and Properties of Matter. Furthermore, the Physics Practical is to enable students to determine some physical constants such as acceleration due to gravity,  the resistance of a wire, the specific heat capacity of a solid or liquid, force constant of a spiral spring to mention a few.
