TROUBLESHOOTING
-Primary Test:
1. Attach the Rotary Motion Sensor to the Vernier data-collection interface and start the data-collection software.
2. If you are using LabPro, open the Rotary Motion Angular.cmbl file from the Probes and Sensors folder in Logger Pro.
3. Start data collection.
4. Rotate the axle one revolution counterclockwise.
5. The reading should advance from zero to approximately 6.28 radians.
