Advantages of the experiences

Advantajes of the experiences

Special qualities that make this presentation spectacular:

  • The simplicity and accessibility to reproduce these experiences.
  • Very high accurate measurements of time (of the order of 10-4 s).
  • It provides an alternative procedure to the software that is presented by the commercial laboratories for the same purpose.
  • Faster measurements than using standard methods.
  • Possibility of enrichment with other associated physical phenomena to each experience.
  • Importance of including new technologies in the education of sciences.
  • The major advantages are the very low cost of the proposed experiments and they are easy to understand for students due to their familiarity with the software when it is used ‘properly’ for editing musical tracks.
