Measurement of "g'" by Means of the "Improper" Use of Sound Card Software: A Multipurpose Experiment
Ganci, S.
Physics Education, v43 n3 p297-300 May 2008
A well-known experiment for the measurement of the acceleration of gravity is carried out on a personal computer using standard software for a sound card in a non-canonical way, which provides an improved, more accurate, result and is a useful teaching method for a traditional classroom experiment. (Contains 3 figures and 1 footnote.)
