Nick La Rosa, a Level 2 boxing coach from Victoria, Australia, found he could use Vernier data-collection technology to improve the performance of his boxers. Nick has developed various tests to help him evaluate fitness levels of the boxers, as well as effectiveness of the training program.
Nüsret Hisim (Walkersville HS, Walkersville, MD) was in the same situation as many other customers: He long ago updated his interfaces to newer LabPros or CBL 2s. Here are some creative ways he makes use of those older, original CBLs.
One of the experiments in our physics lab manuals has students determine the speed of sound in air by creating a short sound in a column of air, such as a hollow tube. A Vernier Microphone is used to pick up the initial sound and the echo of the sound from the end of the tube.
A popular, inexpensive, product sold in northern climes is a single-use packet that warms up upon “activation” and stays warm for a few hours. They come in different sizes, most are small enough to fit in an adult palm, and they’re advertised as “hand warmers,” “feet warmers,” or generically as heat packs.
