Colin McGuire and Catherine Hendricks, BigSURS 2011

Measuring Viscosity with a Driven Damped Harmonic Oscillator Presented at the 2011 Big South Undergraduate Research Symposium (BigSURS) A typical problem solved in a junior/senior level classical mechanics course is the driven, damped harmonic oscillator with a linear drag force. This experiment is surprisingly difficult to build because the linear drag is dependent on the […]
