Sensor Tools lets students perform classroom physics experiments using their own smartphones.
This first version of our app includes two modules:
Motion Tracking - for capturing, analyzing, and plotting the motion of, e.g., a falling ball or a glider on an air cushion track.
Light Refraction - for analyzing the refraction of light from one medium to another and determining the index of refraction.
All data, graphs, and video/photo material can be easily exported to Dropbox and shared via email.
