Unit 3 - Oscillation
The purpose of these labs are to use Arduino and Python to study motion of physical objects.
- Lab 3A: Least Square-fit and SHO
- Lab 3B: Energy in Damped/Undamped Oscillation
- Lab 3C: Energy in Pendulum and Physical Pendulum
In Lab 3A, you will learn a new fitting method in python called least square fitting and also you will use that to find the parameters in a spring mass system sample.
In Lab 3B, you will use fitted parameters you obtained for damped and undamped system to analyze the conservation of energy in these system.Please complete the pre-lab assignment before your Monday Lab.
In Lab 3C, you will analyze the conservation of energy in pendulum and also you will make your own physical pendulum and find out it's properties.Please complete the post-lab assignment before Sunday night.
