Take the physics out of the classroom with Sensor Tools
Sideric Sensor Tools is an iPhone app that lets students perform classroom physics experiments using their own smartphones.
Sensor Tools uses inbuilt sensors and internet connectivity to turn the phone into a personal instrument for physics experiments, collaboration, and learning.
Version 1.2 includes two modules:
- Motion Tracking - for capturing, analyzing, and plotting the motion of, e.g., a falling ball or a glider on an air cushion track.
- Light Refraction - for analyzing the refraction of light from one medium to another and determining the index of refraction.
