You can now use Mathematica to collect data using a Go!Link and different Vernier sensors, thanks to our work with Wolfram Research. In the graph below, we used the peak finding feature of Mathematica to do further analysis on data collected with a Dual-Range Force Sensor.

You can also import data taken in a different Vernier data-collection program, such as Logger Pro. The graphics below show results from our Advanced Physics with Vernier – Beyond Mechanics Experiment 8, “Mapping Electric Potential,” displayed in Mathematica.

We are also working with Wolfram Research with a goal of supporting data collection using LabQuest and Mathematica.
