Analyzing Elevator Oscillation with the Smartphone Acceleration Sensors
Kuhn, Jochen; Vogt, Patrik; Müller, Andreas
Physics Teacher, v52 n1 p55-56 Jan 2014
It has often been reported in this column that smartphones are very suitable tools for exploring the physical properties of everyday phenomena. A very good example of this is an elevator ride. In addition to the acceleration processes, oscillations of the cabin are interesting. The present work responds to the second aspect.
