Engineering Chemistry Lab

The uses of various chemicals and chemical products in diverse engineering fields have repeatedly proved the importance of Engineering Chemistry. Ever increasing use of such materials will compel engineers to acquire essential Engineering Chemistry knowledge in order to select engineering materials, which not only suit them but also provide more environmental compatibility. After undergoing this subject, the student will be able to:

  • Use of different analytical instruments.
  • Measure molecular/ system properties such as surface tension, viscosity, conductance of solution, chloride and iron content in water.
  • Measure hardness of water.
  • Estimate the rate constant of reaction.
  • Verify suitability and select polymer/ rubber/ plastic materials for engineering applications.

Engineering Physics Lab

Engineering Physics Laboratory imparts the necessary theoretical knowledge and technical skill for all the budding Engineers of KNIT Sultanpur to handle the precision tools and electronic gadgets there by laying the foundation stone for the future technocrats in the practice of their professions. The basic focus in the Engineering Physics Laboratory is to develop scientific temper and encourage students to innovate in diverse technical areas for better understanding of technical and engineering problems. Students will attend labs where they will see principle of Physics in action. The Engineering Physics Laboratory is well ventilated having a floor area of 300 m2inclusive of a separate room for the optical experiments. There is ample provision of steel almirah and iron racks for safe storage of the equipments. The experiments prescribed by institute have been carefully planned in cycles so that maximum 2 to 3 students can conduct a single experiments in given period. Multiplicity of gadgets is avoided ensuring maximum resource utilization. The optics room of the physics lab is well equipped to conduct optical experiments. Experiment set-ups are available in the department for laboratory work to substantiate the theory that is being taught in the class during 1st/2nd semesters as per the institute syllabus. It is equipped with all the apparatus required as per the AKTU curriculum. Adequate number of sets of each experiment is available so as to accommodate 30-35 students at a time in the laboratory. Each group is guided by a team of two faculty members, one laboratory assistant and one laboratory attendant.
In Physics laboratory we have various physics instruments to perform following experiments (As per AKTU curriculum)

  • To determine the wavelength of sodium light by Newton’s ring experiment.
  • To determine the wavelength of different spectral lines of mercury light using plane transmission grating.
  • To determine the specific rotation of cane sugar solution using polarimeter.
  • To determine the focal length of the combination of two lenses separated by a distance and verify the formula for the focal length of combination of lenses
  • To determine the wavelength of He-Ne laser light using single slit diffraction.
  • To study the polarization of light using He-Ne laser light.
  • To determine the wavelength of sodium light with the help of Fresnel’s bi-prism.
  • To determine the coefficient of viscosity of a given liquid.
  • To determine the value of acceleration due to gravity (g) using compound pendulum.
  • To determine the energy band gap of a given semiconductor material.
  • To determine the variation of magnetic field with the distance along the axis of a current carrying coil and estimate the radius of the coil.
  • To verify Stefan’s law by electric method.
  • To determine resistance per unit length and specific resistance of a given resistance using Carey Foster's Bridge.
  • To study the resonance condition of a series LCR circuit.
  • To determine the electrochemical equivalent (ECE) of copper.
  • To calibrate the given ammeter and voltmeter by potentiometer.

A comprehensive demonstration is carried out by the faculty members for each experiment to help the students in better understanding of the experimental procedure and the theoretical concepts required to perform that experiment. Besides, in every practical class there is a viva-voce test of the concerned experiment to asses the understanding of the students.

Language lab (Professional communication lab)

Communication is the most important aspect of human society, in modern world Technology has become a part and parcel of Human life, from cooking food to the transplantation of heart all could be done efficiently with the help of technology and to have an access to the same we require a deep knowledge of technology and the ways how to communicate their knowledge to the society. The major concern of initiating Communication Lab is to develop the ability to communicate effectively as technical professionals. As per the need of the hour, technical communication aims to educate humane and environment sensitive engineers. In communication lab we enhance the skills of the students and prepare them for the world waiting out there, it gives them a practical knowledge of using language for betterment of the society.
The equipments used in Language lab are:

  • Computers
  • Microphones
  • P.C. Software
  • Projectors and
  • Sound system.
