What is this session about Combining a variety of tools It is now possible to combine a variety of easily available tools to do conventional lab experiments more effectively (even at home) Smartphones, free software and spreadsheets A combination of tools can enable students to record and analyse data accurately and conveniently Transferable skills Once… Continue reading An experiment on RC circuits for lockdown times

Free fall using an acoustic stopwatch on a smartphone

A freely falling object on Earth is solely under the influence of gravity. This experiment utilizes a mobile application Phyphox that makes use of an acoustic watch to help us calculate the value of acceleration due to gravity 'g'. freefall-using-an-acoustic-stpowatch-on-the-smartphoneDownload

Smartphone Spectroscopy

The reason we see color is because everything around us absorbs different wavelengths of light.The change in color of a colored solution with change in concentration is something that we can see. But it is difficult for us to identify the concentration just by looking at the color of a solution with our naked eyes… Continue reading Smartphone Spectroscopy
