Physics 141: Foundations of Physics
- Data analysis software
Data Studio, the software that we use to take and analyze data in the lab, is available for you to use on your own computer (this is legal because of the physics deparment's site license). To install Data Studio on your computer download the software from the manufacturer's website and request the site license codes from me.
- Computer Modeling software
In the lab we also use visual python to make 3-D models of physical situations. This software is freely available and can be downloaded here.
