Big and Small: How to Scale an Image

Introduction

Scaling Images: An object's image size in a photo or video frame is usually not its real size. It is often useful to study physical phenomena using the Logger Pro software to perform a frame-by-frame video analysis of changes an object undergoes.

Objectives

In this activity, you will

  • Learn how to choose units and set a scale using Logger Pro so that you can perform quantitative analyses of real physical events.

Software for Experiment

This experiment uses Logger Pro software for video analysis. The video for analysis is included with the lab book.
