Lab Portfolio

Below you can find a digital portfolio of some of the labs I completed during my AP Physics class along with a short reflection on what I learned during the process.  This was probably my favorite part of the class.  Some of the labs were long, but they were all fun.  Click on the titles to view the lab reports.

In this lab we investigated what factors affect a mathematical pendulum.  We were able to determine that only the local gravitational field constant and the length of the pendulum have any affect when the amplitude is under 20 degrees.  I also learned a lot about data analysis and linearization as we had to fit various curves to find a trend, and then linearize our data to make sure our trends were correct.
