Physics Education, v54 n1 Article 015012 Jan 2019
This article is about the development of an Internet-based remotely-controlled physical experiment, this is a part of the Remotely Controlled Laboratory at the University of Applied Sciences of Cologne known as TH Köln. The main experimental set-up is based on Pohl's Torsion Pendulum which was enhanced by a PXI measurement system and a webcam. In this article, initially, the development of the online experiment after modification of the classical experiment is presented. Furthermore, the programming of the measurement and the remote control systems--based on LabVIEW, the website of the experimental set-up, and the data link between the experiment website and the experiment laboratory--are explained. The presented experiment--with the help of the constructed work materials--is suitable as an introduction for an independent work with mechanically forced oscillation.
