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.
Balloon Expansion 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 we can see the balloon start to expand (about 1:13.04). 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 balloon as the origin.
Set Scale Set the scale for the program. In this case, the water bottle’s diameter is a good object to use. (A water bottle diameter is about 2.5 inches). This will automatically set the scale for all data.
Create Data Points Starting from where the balloon begins to expand, click on where the yellow coordinate lines touch the left edge of the balloon. Do this in each frame to create data points. This will automatically graph the x and y positions of the left edge of the balloon.
Right side Click on the video. Copy and paste the video and repeat all the above steps for the right side of the balloon. You should end up with two separate graphs.
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.
Radius Under the “Data” tab, create a new calculated column. Call it Radius (with appropriate “Short name” and “units”). Calculate the radius by subtracting the x positions of the right side of the balloon from the x positions of the left side of the balloon and then dividing their difference by 2. Your equation should look something like: (“VideoAnalysis 2|X”-“VideoAnalysis|X”)/2
Expansion Rate Create another calculated column called “Expansion Rate.” Calculate the expansion rate by dividing the “Radius” column by the “Time” column.
Expansion Rate Graph On the bottom graph, click on the vertical axis label and select “Expansion Rate” to graph the expansion rate as it changes in time.
Analyze Curve Analyze an appropriate curve for the Expansion Rate.
Volume Create a “New Calculated Column” and calculate the volume of the balloon as it is expanding. Assume a spherical balloon and use V=(4/3)*3.14159*radius^3 to calculate the volume.
Volume Graph On the top graph, click on the vertical axis label and select “Volume” to graph the volume as it changes in time.
Analyze Curve Analyze an appropriate curve for the data.
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 Fahrenheit. 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.
Light Sensor Set the sensor to 0-600. Set the timing to 10 samples per second. Sample for 30 seconds.
Dissolved Oxygen Probe Set the timing to 10 samples per second. Sample for 120 seconds.
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).
