## Physics H7a: Honors Mechanics Outline

Note: typos in KK that have been noted are here in [PS|PDF], courtesy of M. Strovink and Y. Kolomensky

Lab handouts: To get some idea of the labs, you can look at old (not necessarily up to date!) handouts, at http://physics.berkeley.edu/courses/labs/7a/7a.shtml. These cannot substitute for the up to date handouts that will be distributed in the lab itself (i.e. you should purchase a syllabus card).
