Interactive Lab Form
Explore simple harmonic motion by observing experiments performed in the lab. You will then be able to enter measurements and perform calculations to compare your measured results to theory. Help is available to students via Zoom sessions with the lab Graduate Teaching Assistants or through the Discussion Board if they don’t understand something.Check it out
Engineers use simulations to learn and test concepts. An example of one of the simulations our students use to learn these concepts is this Center of Mass simulation. You can play a three minute “game” to estimate where the center of mass is for different situations. Students are challenged to beat the score of the class mascot, LazyDog.Check it out
Video Analysis Software
Engineers use video analysis software to gain a deeper understanding of engineering applications. This basic tool can be used for a wide range of problems including how to plot the motion of an object. In order to complete the simulation, you will need to download Tracker and watch this short tutorial to learn how to use the software.
