Physics experiments buried in history
- From Sanko Collection of Physical Apparatus and the physics textbook -
This exhibition will be held before a temporary exhibition in October 2002, planned by the Kyoto University Museum: "Science and technology in modern Japan, and history in Kyoto University" (tentative title). This pre-temporary exhibition is specially held for the spring annual conference of the Physical Society of Japan, held in Shiga Prefecture. Kyoto University possesses a lot of equipments of the historical physics experiments that were conducted in the older days. Those equipments will be exhibited corresponding to the physics experiments described by the physics textbook in those days. With this exhibition, we hope that a historical study of physics will be added to the physical experimental education in the future. [The exhibition sceneries: (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6), (7)]
