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.
Basketball Toss Graph (Video Analysis)
View Video View the Basketball Shot Video in Logger Pro. You can find it by clicking Insert->Movie->Sample Movies->(either “Original Video Files” or “Basketball Shot” folder)-> click on “Basketball Shot Video.” You can also view this video to help you find it.
Set Origin Find the time when the ball leaves the man’s hand (about 0.18 seconds). Click on the “Sync Movie to Graph” icon and set the “Graph Time” to zero. Set the bottom of the basketball as the origin.
Set Scale Set the scale for the program. In this case, the basketball’s diameter is a good object to use. (Its diameter is about 0.24 meters). This will automatically set the scale for all data.
Create Data Points Starting from where the ball leaves the man’s hand, click on the bottom of the basketball in each frame to create data points. This will automatically graph the x and y positions of the basketball.
Analyze Curve Analyze an appropriate curve for both x and y positions.
Screen Shot After adjusting the graph layout (see “Graph Layout” section), take a screenshot of your final graph and the Data Set Table.
Velocity Graphs Click on the vertical axis and click more to display both x and y velocities.
Analyze Curve Analyze an appropriate curve for both x and y velocities.
Screen Shot After adjusting the graph layout (see “Graph Layout” section), take a screenshot of your final graph and the Data Set Table.
Calculate X Acceleration Under the “Data” tab, create a new calculated column. Call it X Accleration (with appropriate “Short name” and “units”). Calculate the acceleration by dividing the “X Velocity” column by the “time” column.
Calculate Y Acceleration Repeat the above step to calculate the Y Acceleration.
Acceleration Graph Click on the vertical axis and click more to display both x and y accelerations.
Analyze Curve Analyze an appropriate curve for both x and y accelerations.
Screen Shot After adjusting the graph layout (see “Graph Layout” section), take a screenshot of your final graph and the Data Set Table.
X vs Y Position Click on the vertical axis and display y position. Click on the horizontal axis to choose x position as the dependent variable.
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
Before collecting data, be sure to zero each sensor.
Motion Detector Set the timing to 30 samples per second. Sample for 5 seconds. Change the units to feet. Under the “Experiment” tab, click on “Store Latest Run” to store the first set of data (this will keep the first set on the graph while collecting another run). Collect another set of data. Both sets should display 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.
Barometer Set the timing to .5 samples per second. Sample for 30 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.
Dual-Range Force Sensor Set the timing to 70 samples per second. Sample for 10 seconds.
Relative Humidity Sensor Set the timing to 5 seconds per sample. Sample for 30 seconds.
Sound Level Meter Set a trigger for 75 dB and the sampling rate at 2 samples per second. Sample for 30 seconds.
Hand-Grip Heart Rate Monitor Set the timing to 50 samples per second. Sample for 100 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).
