Learn from an experimental physicist

Apr 15, 2015 learning IdeaFest phys-332 oscilloscope coax electronics

speed of electricity measured in IdeaFest

IdeaFest is an annual event at USD celebrating student research, creative scholarship and academic engagement. Most students in phys-332 signed up for the event. One of them gave an oral presentation about the measurement of speed of light in air performed in the class. The other two demonstrated lively how we measured the speed of electricity in cables with a function generator, two coaxial cables and an oscilloscope.
