A Stroboscopic Light Source for Experiments in Mechanics
Mayer, V. V.; Varaksina, E. I.
Physics Education, v52 n6 Article 065015 Nov 2017
We propose to attach a small stroboscopic light source to a moving object and connect the source to a pulse generator with the help of insulated thin flexible multi-cored wires. Students can assemble such a device independently in a school laboratory. The device can be used to obtain trajectories with time marks in students' research projects in mechanics. In the paper we give an example of the application of stroboscopic photography in a demonstration experiment devoted to inertia.
