The Physics with Video Analysis book contains a wide selection of video analysis activities for introductory physics at either the high school or college level. Topics include kinematics, dynamics, circuits, sound, electrostatics, and more. Includes a CD with professionally made videos, student activities, solutions, and Logger Pro setup files.

The Physics with Video Analysis book is a product of the NSF-funded LivePhoto Project. For more information, see http://livephoto.rit.edu/

To learn more about the video capture and analysis features of Logger Pro, read the Overview of Video Features in Logger Pro FAQ.

Each Vernier Lab Book includes:

  • Complete student experiments with materials list, step-by-step instructions, data tables, and questions.
  • Teacher Information section for each experiment with complete directions for setting up experiments, helpful hints, and sample graphs and data.
  • Word-processing files of the student sections on a CD so that any experiment may be easily edited to your specifications (Microsoft Word for Macintosh and Windows files).
