Resource Letter MDS-1: Mobile devices and sensors for physics teaching
This Resource Letter provides a guide to the literature on teaching experimental physics using sensors in tablets, smartphones, and some specialized devices. After a general discussion of hardware


On the relative motion of the Earth and the luminiferous ether
THE discovery. of the aberration of light was soon followed by an explanation according to the emission theory. The effect was attributed to a simple composition of the velocity of light with the
Early Estimates of the Velocity of Light
HE astronomical methods by which OLE ROEMER and JAMES BRADLEY demonstrated the finite velocity of light are familiar portions of the scientific tradition. With respect to the early estimates of the
An innovative experimental sequence on electromagnetic induction and eddy currents based on video analysis and cheap data acquisition
In this work, we present a coherent sequence of experiments on electromagnetic (EM) induction and eddy currents, appropriate for university undergraduate students, based on a magnet falling through a
Measuring average angular velocity with a smartphone magnetic field sensor
The angular velocity of a spinning object is, by standard, measured using a device called a tachometer. However, by directly using it in a classroom setting, the activity is likely to appear as less
Measurement of the magnetic field of small magnets with a smartphone: a very economical laboratory practice for introductory physics courses
In this work, we propose an inexpensive laboratory practice for an introductory physics course laboratory for any grade of science and engineering study. This practice was very well received by our
Magnetic Field "Flyby" Measurement Using a Smartphone's Magnetometer and Accelerometer Simultaneously.
The spatial dependence of magnetic fields in simple configurations is a common topic in introductory electromagnetism lessons, both in high school and in university courses. In typical experiments,
Clocking the Mind: Mental Chronometry and Individual Differences
Theory of the Correlation Between Response Time and Intelligence and the Relation of RT to Other Psychological Variables is explained.
Mémoire sur la vitesse de la lumière
Ce memoire a une histoire particuliere : bien que lu par Arago en 1810 a l’Academie des sciences, il ne sera pas publie a ce moment-la mais en 1853, juste avant la mort d’Arago.
Users of the main smartphone operating systems (iOS, Android) differ only little in personality
Minor differences in personality seem to exist, but they are of small to negligible effect size and may reflect differences in sociodemographic composition, rather than operating system of smartphone users.
