Data Analysis
Insert Data Using the given sample data, input the data into the Data Set Table. You can find the sample data under “Links” in the upper right hand corner of this page.
Graph Options All data points should be “point symbols” (or “point protectors” depending on what version of LoggerPro you have) but not “connect[ed] points.”
Labels and Units All columns in the Data Set should have appropriate labels. Double click on the column headings to set “Name,” “Short Name,” and “units.” Also be sure to rename “Data Set” by double clicking on it.
Analyze Curve Using the “Curve Fit” option, analyze an appropriate curve. When in the Curve Fit window, you must click “Try Fit” before clicking ok.
Screen Shot After adjusting the graph layout (see “Graph Layout” section), take a screenshot of your final graph and the Data Table.
Cell Growth Graph (Video Analysis)
View Video View this video and use it to complete the requirements for this section.
Set Start Time Find the time when the bacteria starts to expand (in this case, it starts expanding at about 0 seconds). Click on the “Sync Movie to Graph” icon and set the “Graph Time” to zero.
Set Origin Click on the “Set Origin” icon and set the middle of the top bacteria as the origin. Using the yellow dot, turn the origin so that it aligns with the direction where the bacteria will grow. Use the right edge of this cell for taking all data.
Set Scale Set the scale for the program. In this case, the original size of the top bacteria is a good object to use. Its length is about 1.1 micrometers (1100 nm). This will automatically set the scale for all data.
Create Data Points Starting from where the bacteria begins to expand (0 seconds), click on where the yellow coordinate lines touch the right edge of the main bacteria cell. Do this in each frame to create data points, until about 3.7 seconds. When you set a point, the program will automatically advance to the next frame. You can skip a few frames between data points. To do this, click the fastforward icon. This will automatically graph the x and y positions of the right edge of the bacteria. (The Y positions should all be at about 0.)
Analyze Curve Analyze an appropriate curve for both x and y positions on each graph.
Screen Shot After adjusting the graph layout (see “Graph Layout” section), take a screenshot of your final graphs and Data Set Table.
Length Under the “Data” tab, create a new calculated column. Call it “Length” (with appropriate “Short name” and “units”). Calculate the approximate length of the bacteria by multiplying the x position by 2. Use the “Variables (Columns)” button to use your video data. Your equation should something like: “X” * 2.
Length Graph Click on the vertical axis label and select “Length” to graph Length as it changes in time.
Analyze Curve Analyze an appropriate curve for the length.
Screen Shot After adjusting the graph layout (see “Graph Layout” section), take a screenshot of your final graph and the Data Set Table.
Growth Rate Rename the column currently labeled “X Velocity” to “Growth Rate.” Be sure to give it an appropriate Short Name. You should not need to change the units.
Growth Rate Graph Click on the vertical axis label of the graph and select “Growth Rate” to graph the growth rate as it changes in time.
Analyze Curve Analyze an appropriate curve for the Growth Rate.
Screen Shot After adjusting the graph layout (see “Graph Layout” section), take a screenshot of your final graph and the Data Set Table.
Calculate Area Create a “New Calculated Column” and call it “Area” (with appropriate “Short name” and “units”). Calculate the area of the bacteria as it is exanding. Assume a rectangle and use half the length for the width. Your equation should look something like “Length”*(“Length”/2).
New Graph Under the “Insert” tab, insert a new graph. Press ctrl+r to auto arrange the graphs.
Area Graph On the new graph, click on the vertical axis label and select “Area” to graph the volume as it changes in time.
Rescale You may wish to rescale the data so the numbers aren’t as big. Go into your “Area” calculation by double clicking on that column heading. At the end of your equation, add “*(10^-6)^2” and change the units to mm (for millimeters).
Analyze Curve Analyze an appropriate curve for the data.
Growth vs Length On the Growth Rate graph, click on the horizontal axis and select “Length” to graph the growth rate as the bacteria grows. You do not need to analyze a curve.
Screen Shot After adjusting the graph layout (see “Graph Layout” section), take a screenshot of your final graph and the Data Set Table.
Collecting Data
Temperature Sensor Set the timing to 2 samples per second. Sample for 20 seconds. Change units to degrees Farenheit. Take 2 sets of data, store the first data set so that both sets of data are shown on the same graph.
Of the sensors below, choose 2 more sensors to take data with.
Conductivity Probe Set the sensor to 0-200. Set the timing to 1 sample per second. Sample for 60 seconds.
Gas Pressure Sensor Set the timing to .1 samples per second. Sample for 60 seconds.
Dissolved Oxygen Probe Set the timing to 10 samples per second. Sample for 120 seconds.
Hand-Grip Heart Rate Monitor Set the timing to 50 samples per second. Sample for 100 seconds.
Blood Pressure Sensor Follow the directions on the Blood Pressure Sensor pamphlet (“Using the Blood Pressure Sensor with a Computer” on p.2-3) to collect the data. *If you choose to use this data for your analysis, fit a curve only to the part of the graph where the cuff is releasing pressure.
Relative Humidity Sensor Set the timing to 5 seconds per sample. Sample for 30 seconds.
Respiration Monitor Belt Follow the directions on the Respiration Monitor Belt pamphlet. Take 2 sets of data, store the first data set so that both sets of data are shown on the same graph. The test subject should be different for each set of data (either 2 different people, or the same person before and after physical exertion)
Analyze Sensor Data
Curve Fit From the data of 2 sensors of your choice, run a separate curve analysis of each. The type of analysis must be different for both sensors.
Screen Shot After adjusting the graph layout (see “Graph Layout” section), take a screenshot of your final graphs and the Data Set Tables. (You should have screenshots of each of the 3 sensors you used: 2 with curve analyses and one without).
Graph Layout
Labels All graphs should have labels on x- and y- axes and titles.
Units All graphs should have appropriate units for all axes.
Organization All graphs should be auto-scaled (click the “Autoscale Graph” icon on the toolbar) and auto-arranged (ctrl+R).
