Testing and Measurement: A User-Friendly Guide
Sharon E. Robinson Kurpius
August 2005
Book Description
This step-by-step approach, allows students to master testing and measurement concepts through practical exercises and feedback. Using humor, cartoons and real-world examples, Sharon E. Robinson Kurpius and Mary E. Stafford guide the reader through the essential components of measurement, starting with measurement scales and ending with reliability and validity. The authors show that everyone can learn testing and measurement concepts, and they make the learning process fun and non-threatening. For those who want to challenge themselves beyond the self-instructional exercises included throughout each chapter, data sets are provided as an aid to further learning. The book is invaluable for all introductory courses in measurement and testing at undergraduate and lower-level graduate level in the social and...

Experiments in Instrumentional Measurements

Apr 1997

Eyewitness: Time and Space
Mary R. Gribbin
May 2000
Book Review
Bake a soufflé, and you'll never unscramble the ingredients again. Unless, that is, you twist the ends of a wormhole around several times and drive a rocket through it, traveling back to a time before you ever cracked an egg. In Time & Space, part of the Eyewitness Science series, you'll learn all about time travel, wormholes, and all the ways that the universe is thought to be constructed. Stand-ins from real life (like orange peels, broken glasses, and trains) help you figure out what Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, and other physicists mean when they refer to black holes, space-time distortion, and other strange cosmic things. Starting with ancient ideas about space and time, and ending with the imaginary construction of a wormhole through time, Time & Space takes you on a colorfully illustrated trip through...

Inventing Temperature: Measurement and Scientific Progress
Hasok Chang
July 2004
Book Description
What is temperature, and how can we measure it correctly? These may seem like simple questions, but the most renowned scientists struggled with them throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. In Inventing Temperature, Chang examines how scientists first created thermometers; how they measured
temperature beyond the reach of standard thermometers; and how they managed to assess the reliability and accuracy of these instruments without a circular reliance on the instruments themselves.

In a discussion that brings together the history of science with the philosophy of science, Chang presents the simple eet challenging epistemic and technical questions about these instruments, and the complex web of abstract philosophical issues surrounding them. Chang's book shows that many items
of knowledge that we take for...

The Art of Experimental Physics
Daryl W. Preston
January 1991
Textbook Paperback
Book Description
Fills the need for an experimental physics text. There are three main sections of the text. The first is an introduction that offers valuable insights into the importance of the human element in physics and traces the course of its historical development. This section also explains the objectives of the physics laboratory and the skills you must master to maintain a ``Notebook'' and analyze data, and presents a general discussion of spectroscopy experiments. The second section discusses the unique and valuable role of the computer in the laboratory and explains how to use it; software is included with the text. The final section contains over twenty experiments, providing students with a broad introduction into the use of a variety of instruments for carrying out many different measurements.


Diagnostic Tools in Atmospheric Physics, Vol. 124
G. Fiocco (Editor)
September 1995
Book Description
This volume addresses a number of both experimental techniques and methods for the data treatment introduced in the last ten years or so in different fields of the atmospheric sciences. Considerable emphasis has been given since their introduction to the use of satellites or spaceborne measurements with a recent example being the important results obtained with UARS. Of particular interest are the airborne instruments developed for the stratospheric measurement campaign organized by the NASA since 1976 to study the ozone hole and followed later by similar experiments to study the high-latitude ozone depletion in the northern hemisphere. The results of these experiments have helped clarify the role of chlorine-bearing compounds in the ozone depletion and the effect of the heterogeneous processes. The book is organized...

Computer Simulated Experiments for Electric Circuits Using Electronics Workbench Multisim
Richard H. Berube
April 2003
Textbook Paperback
Book Description
This unique and innovative laboratory manual helps readers learn and understand circuit analysis concepts by using Electronic Workbench software to simulate actual laboratory experiments on a computer. Users work with circuits drawn on the computer screen and with simulated instruments that act like actual laboratory instruments. Circuits can be modified easily with on-screen editing, and analysis results provide fast, accurate feedback. “Hands-on” in approach throughout—in both interactive experiments and a series of questions about the results of each experiment—it is more cost effective, safer, and more thorough and efficient than using hardwired experiments. Uses MulitiSim to simulate dc and ac electric circuit experiments on a computer screen using simulated instruments to make circuit...

Calorimetry: Energy Measurement in Particle Physics
Richard Wigmans
December 2000
Book Description
Particle physics is the science that pursues the age-old quest for the innermost structure of matter and the fundamental interactions between its constituents. Modern experiments in this field rely increasingly on calorimetry, a detection techniques in which the particles of interest are
absorbed in the detector. Calorimeters are very intricate instruments, their performance characteristics depend in subtle, sometimes counter-intuitive ways on design details. This book, written by one of the world's foremost experts, is the first comprehensive text on this topic. It provides a
fundamental and systematic introduction, in which many intriguing calorimeter features are explained. It also describes the state of the art, both for what concerns the fundamental understanding of calorimetric particle detection and the...
