Excerpt from Practical Physics, Vol. 1: An Introductory Handbook for the Physical Laboratory

IT is needless at the present day to insist on the fact that the study of Experimental Physics is incomplete without a course of laboratory practice; Professor Huxley wrote upwards of thirty years ago Mere book-learning in physical science is a sham and a delusion, real knowledge in science means personal acquaintance with the facts, be they few or many. Moreover, as a means of education the value of Practical Physics is obvious, for it affords a training in careful observation, reasoning power, and alertness of mind, probably unsurpassed by other kinds of laboratory work; like all practical knowledge, it is a valuable aid in the cultivation of common sense, by which is meant a just estimate of the relative value and due proportion of different events.

Nevertheless, it is only in recent years that Practical Physics has been recognised as an integral part of scientific education? This, doubtless, has been due to various causes: the equipment of a physical laboratory is expensive, but, on the other hand, its working expenses are less than many other kinds of laboratory work; the chief cause.
