G. F. C. Searle

Price: £10.00

G. F. C. Searle was a legend at the Cavendish laboratory, in charge of delivering practical physics instruction for about half a century from 1890.  Through the example he set, he indirectly influenced the way practical physics was taught for many decades in Universities throughout the world.  His main interest was in the accurate measurement of properties of matter and his name is associated with the invention of quite a number of distinctive pieces of equipment for this purpose.  W. G. Pye supplied equipment of Searle's design to large numbers of Schools and Universities.   This is his first book, full of practical detail, as one might expect.  Don't miss the final 6-page note on 'Hints on Practical Work in Physics'.
