The intent of this project is to develop and explain a computer program written to control and analyze data from a digital instrument. That capability is then applied to several laboratory experiments involving sound and light waves in some capacity. The bulk of the time spent on this project was dedicated to the development of the software. For that reason, the theory concerning the experiments is not extremely technical or in-depth. Most of the concepts involved are learned in Introductory Physics classes. I feel that the importance of the project is not in a detailed explanation of the experiments, but in a program which works consistently, enabling future research to be carried out with few, if any, problems arising with the operation of the computer and the instrument which it controls.
