The department of chemistry has well developed laboratory. The students carry out their practical works in the laboratory under the guidance of faculty members Dr. Y. C. Nainwal, Mr. Kamlesh Lohani and Dr. S. C. Sati. The laboratory assistant Mr. Sanjay Negi and Mr. Pawan Bhandari also provide their support to students during the practical classes. The laboratory attendant Mr. Anoop Singh and Mr. Badrish help students to supply the requisite instrument and chemicals to the students for the practical task assigned to them.
The chemistry lab has availability of all the facilities needed to carry out practical work assigned to the students. Besides it, the laboratory is also equipped with advanced research facilities like availability of Double Beam as well as Single Beam UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, Distillation assembly, Rotatory Plant Extract Evaporator, Water bath, Conductometer, pH meter, Hot plate, Soxhlet apparatus and Clevenger apparatus.
Apart from it all required chemicals, electronic balances, chemical balances, glasswares, oven and furnace are also available for smooth conduction of practical work. Every year whatever grant is obtained to procure lab facilities is consumed completely to assist the students and to generate their interest in research activities.
About the Laboratory: Department of Physics has two laboratories one for undergraduate along with dark room and another for post graduate. As per student’s strength the laboratory partially equipped with apparatus. There are separate experiments for each class. We have experiments as per university syllabus in each class. In post graduation there are electronic based experiments. Presently in the laboratory there are four types of experiments, which are in working condition. In future we are expected to install to more experiments in the laboratory to meet out the demand of students.
Mechanics based: Bar Pendulum, Kater’s Pendulum. Flywheel, Max well’s Needle, Bending of Beam, Barton’s Apparatus (Horizontal and Vertical Methods), Ply Wheel, Inertia Table. Basic knowledge and measurement by Screw Gauge and Vernier Callipers.
Light based: Newton’s Ring, resolving power of Telescope, Nodal Slide, Sextant, L.B. Photometer, Spectrometer, Photo cell, Heat Based: Lee’s Disc method, Thermal conductivity rubber tube.
Electronics : Hall Effect, Colpitt Oscillator, modulation ,demodulation, Study of CRO, Half and full wave rectifier, transistors (PNP and NPN) with different configuration, P-N Junction diode, Zener Diode, LCR Circuit parallel and series combination, Network theorems, MOSFET, DIAC, RC and TC Couple, VR Tube. Frequency of A.C. mains, Lissjous figures Bridge rectifier, IC based experiments, Adders.
The department has well equipped and well managed laboratory for UG and PG courses offered by the university. Important equipments present in the department includes Autoclave, Centrifuges, various type of microscopes such as Compound, Binocular, Trinocular Research Microscope with camera, BOD incubator, Mini Horizontal Gel electrophoresis, Digital balance, Herbarium cabinet, Digital pH meter, etc. Department has well established facility for cytological studies of mitosis and meiosis. There is a Spectrophotometry (both single beam and double beam) facility (attached with chemistry department) available for PG students. Our laboratory provides a setting for students to explore biological questions relevant to plants while developing fundamental skills in the field of botany through a combination of field and laboratory experiments.
Department of Zoology have only one laboratory for UG & PG students. Faculty always tried to best to conducted much possible experiments as instruments/equipments and chemicals are available in the Department like Microtomy, Chromatography, experiments of hydrobiology & haematology, permanent mounting and experents of biochemistry. Excluding the above experiments department have necessary instruments viz. compound and binocular microscopes, LED projector & computer etc.
It is not possible to make Geography teaching effective without making use of maps, charts, globe etc. Like any other science laboratory, a workshop or laboratory of Geography creates a congenial atmosphere and stimulates the imagination of the students and gives them inspiration.
The geography department laboratory is well equipped with a series of maps, Globes, and a variety of Survey equipment like Thermometer, Barometer, wet and dry bulb Thermometer, Plane Table Set, Prismatic Compass, Dumpy Level, Theodolite, Abney Level, Clinometer Compass, Levelling Staff, Automatic Level etc.
The department also organizes field trips for the students to study the natural Occupancy of various facts and inform about physical changes with the help of Global Positioning System and Geographic Information System available on the internet.
The laboratory specializes in the development of qualitative and quantitative research skills and methods and techniques in geography such as practical cartography, Quantitative and Statistical Techniques, Field Survey method, Geography Informatics compressing techniques such as Remote Sensing, GIS, GPS etc. Now-a-days graphic aids are a powerful medium for teaching and learning which includes pantographs, flash and strips and pictures etc.
