Introductory Laboratory Apparatus
Apparatus Title: A Precision,
Abstract The turntable converts calculations
of angular position and velocity into reality. Answers such as "81.4°,"
"0.55 rad/s" or "tan-1(X/1.4)" become actual movements
of a flashlight, mirror, lens or other device. The turntable costs less
than $50 and works with any computer- or calculator-based interface with
4 digital output lines. Areas of application include vectors, rotational
kinematics and dynamics, optics, and electricity and magnetism.
- Support required for apparatus : No special needs,
except that it would be very helpful to have a clear space roughly 1.5
m by 2 m in front of the display in which visitors can interact with the
- Approximate size The apparatus itself measures about
120 mm x 90 mm x 60 mm. The entire display will fit easily on a standard
- Does this apparatus require Electrical Power? Yes,
one standard outlet.
- Is this apparatus intended for use with an overhead projector? No
- Will you be present to set up your apparatus? Yes
- When do you plan to set up your apparatus? Sunday,
July 30 9-11 AM
- Other support needed for the proper operation of this apparatus:
Just reasonable security. To operate, I need to leave a calculator, LabPro
interface and a motion detector on display.
