Unit 3 - Oscillations
To review physics laws on mechanics, please check out OpenStax texbook.Here are important Chapters with respect to oscillations:
Pre-lab Week 3
In this pre-lab we will focusing on understanding and calibrating the accelerometer. Calibrating the accelerometer is more complicated compared to the distance (ultrasonic) sensor. The pre-lab will go over some basics and you will have to solve a few problems and submit the answers on Gradescope.
Lab 3A: Accelerometer and Vertical Mass-Spring system
In this lab, we explore a vertical mass-spring system. We will learn how to find the spring constant and collect both the ultrasound and accelerometer data for oscillations by using the Arduino as the mass in the mass-spring system.
Lab 3B: Complex fitting
Post-lab Week 3
