"Plagiarism" is an everlasting topic, since the connotation of deducing the same, different
means and changeful style, "cheating" it has been popular in today. I've also "plagiarism", when

SIMPLE HARMONIC OSCILLATORS
SUMMARY:
You will determine the spring constant of a spring by observing
the displacement due to various masses. You will then use the
spring and mass as a simple oscillator, and determine

If You Are Uncertain About Uncertainty
Most physics students find the concept of uncertainty to be enigmatic; this does not need to
be the case. Uncertainty is both an essential and useful component of experimental physics and is
not as difficult to maste
