Today tried to measure acceleration due to gravity using motion of glider on an inclined plane.
Used the pickup i designed yesterday and photo-gate to measure acceleration. The results are very good and are in close agreement with theoretical calculations.
For motion on an incline acceleration along the inclined plane is g’ = g sin(theta) where (theta) is the angle on inclination. wrote a small python code using time measurement functions of ExpEYES library.
Used this code for measuring time…
a = p.multi_r2rtime(3) # time for 1 cycle
b = p.multi_r2rtime(3,2) #time for 4 cycles, 2 rising edges are skipped
