Lab Quizzes[edit]

  1. Unless otherwise announced, the number of questions taken from these quizzes will never exceed 10% of the test.
  2. Students: Please do not edit these quizzes, use the student sandbox instead. Also, when you study, sure to check the history page to ensure that your instructor was the most recent editor. These are "live" links.
  • March 18,2015: phy1060 (under construction)
  • March 18,2015: phy1120 Covers the concept of current, voltage, energy, and force in the analog between electric and gravitational fields. This quiz is inspired by the Van der Graff generator demonstration.

Student input[edit]

The following pages are available for tinkering by students. It is not possible for a page to be edited on two computers at the same time, so if you want your instructor to edit your page close it.

how to use the flip camera and other information on campus video cameras

We need to know the speed capability of videos. Since this is a purely educational project, we don't need research grade speed costing thousands of dollars. Instead we need something for about a hundred dollars.

  • We have a w:flip cameraultra that does 60 fps
  • The tech guy found a 98$ thing that does 120, 60, 30 fps.
  • Rod Cross's slinky video at 300 fps.
