Another example of the advantage of Mobile Card will be its ability to provide data on acceleration, velocity and position through an accellometer on a removable “daughter card” which communicates wirelessly to the Mobile Card. This configuration will replace a unwieldy tangle of wires used to service the current data collection apparatus in the study of Newtonian Physics.
While we await final development of the accelerometer, the Card has been used with its other features. The following are a sample of laboratory activities developed by Professors Peter Persans and Scott Dwyer for our second semester introductory physics course using the oscilloscope feature of Mobile Card. When additional activities are introduced they will be included.
