Event - Dexter's Lab

Right from our school days, we heard a lot about how interesting and exciting physics is � the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, uncertainty principle and the paradoxes associated with these new ideas. Through this event� we intend to� bring out the child like curiosity and the� joy involved in doing physics by analyzing and performing few simple tasks.���
The event comprises of an elimination round, followed by two rounds testing the skills of the teams at practical application of physics.

Prizes worth Rs 6000 up for grabs for this event. Make the most of this opportunity and register now!

Elimination Round (Round 0)
This round will be a written quiz-type round. A team would be required to answer simple questions asking about the physics behind certain phenomena. It would typically consist of 15 to 20 questions. Each team will be provided a questionnaire and sufficient space alongside to answer the questions, in a limited amount of time.
Sample question: What causes trade winds and what determines their directions?

First Practical Round (Round 1)
The teams will be given an experimental setup demonstrating a simple physical process. They should be able to understand the physics behind different aspects of the experiment, and rearrange the apparatus to demonstrate another similar physical phenomenon. The number of extra components provided will be limited.

Sample problem: The arrangement of a resistor and a capacitor in figure 1 acting as a low pass filter can be rearranged to a high pass filter circuit in figure 2.

Second Practical Round (round 2)
The teams will be required to setup an experiment with given apparatus to construct a given circumstance.
Sample problem: �Given springs, a light bulb circuit with switch, a light block and a solar cell, a team should generate a square voltage waveform of a specified frequency.

Team Specifications

A team may consist of a maximum of 2 members. Students from different educational institutes may form a team.
