On Tuesday, April 28th, from 1:15 to 3:15 p.m., Physics Faculty, Mark S. Boley, and Physics Graduate and Undergraduate laboratory assistants, Christopher Milby and Joseph Wiewel, visited the two sections of High School Physics at Macomb Senior High, along with teacher Mary Quigle. They transported the equipment from WIU Physics and assisted the students in obtaining the V-I graphs for two non-ohmic light bulbs with tungsten filaments and carbon filaments, helping them to understand the electrical resistance properties of metals and semiconductors with different temperature dependencies.
