Release Notes

4.2.0 (September 2019)

The printed book, which includes the Logger Pro versions of the experiments as well as Instructor Information files that support all software/hardware combinations, has been updated to match the files released in v4.1.3. The PDF of the printed book in the Electronic Resources has been similarly updated. All Logger Pro versions of the student experiments and Instructor Information files have also been replaced. Minor edits were made to the following experiments (all platforms): 2, 3, 4, 5, 13, 18, 19, 22–24, and 34. Experiment 09 for Go Direct Sensor Cart and Graphical Analysis 4 was updated with a new illustration to fix an error.

4.1.3 (August 2019)

Included in this update is support for Go Direct Photogate and Graphical Analysis 4 (experiments 5, 8A, 10, and 14). In addition, updated versions of the following experiments for all supported software are available: 8B, 12 (force sensor), 28A and B, and 32.

4.1.2 (December 2018)

Additional experiments for the use of Go Direct and LabQuest sensors with Graphical Analysis 4 are available in this update, including support for the Vernier Photogate (order code: VPG-BTD). Note that Go Direct Photogate will be supported in a future release (experiments 5, 8A, 10, and 14). Required software features for experiments 34 and 35 are not available in Graphical Analysis 4.

4.1.1 (July 2018)

Timed for the 2018 AAPT Summer Meeting, this update contains experiments written for Graphical Analysis 4 app and Go Direct sensors, including

  • Sensor Cart: 3, 4, 9, 19
  • Motion Detector: 1–4, 6, 13, 18, 19
  • Force and Acceleration: 9, 11, 12, 21
  • Acceleration: 7, 20, 21
  • Magnetic Field: 25, 26, 31
  • Current: 22–24, 27
  • Voltage: 24, 27
  • Light and Color: 29
  • Temperature: 30

Download the updated Electronic Resources from your Vernier account. Note: Upcoming releases will include additional experiments for data collection with LabQuest sensors and Graphical Analysis 4 as well as expanded support for using Go Direct sensors with Graphical Analysis 4.

4.1.0 (December 2017)

We are happy to announce the initial release of the 4th edition of Physics with Vernier. The printed book has an updated appearance with a new cover design and a flat binding rather than a coil. Some of the student files have been revised to provide support for collecting data with Graphical Analysis 4 app and LabQuest sensors (Motion Detector, Force, Magnetic Field, Current, Voltage, Light, and Temperature). Future releases will include support for Go Direct sensors.
