Physics 142W is the lab/workshop part of Physics 142E. Every student registered in 142E should also be registered in 142W, although Phys 142W is a separate one hour credit course. The workshop includes a two hour hands-on lab where students will answer pedagogical questions and perform experiments designed to help you learn physics. Much of the workshop is conceptual and is designed to help you understand physics.
