Spins Lab 4

Keywords: quantum measurement, spin precession, Schrodinger time development


Highlights of the activity

  1. Spin precession

Reasons to spend class time on the activity

Students study spin precession in a uniform magnetic field. Students are asked to design an experiment to figure out how the magnet affects spins. They must take data, analyze, develop hypothesis, test hypothesis, and determine scale for magnetic field parameter displayed on screen. They can get a head start if they have done the magnet part of Lab 2.
