James Montgomery Physics 326 Section 04 December 16, 2011 Lab 8: The Onset of Chaos Introduction: The purpose of this lab is to recognize the chaos produced by the Logistic Equa- tion and its systematic doubling by studying the graphs and data produced by translat- ing experimental data to Origin. The Logistic Equation, as seen above, has been used to study population growth and decay by drawing from the birth/death ratio of previous years. Experimental Method: The lab required only a few electronic pieces of equipment to do: RLC circuit, Oscilloscope, Sine wave generator (12.5 kHZ), SR760 FFT, and a 4 digit AC voltmeter. The circuit was set up as follows:

First, a 12kHz frequency was set through the system and a maximum amplitude achieved. This would set the grounds for further setting up of the system. Then, we ad- justed the V[R] knob one half turn clockwise from its full counter-clockwise position and then adjusted the Drive Voltage knob until the voltmeter read .1V. Then, we readjusted
