Rounding Phenomena Present in the Propagation of Low Amplitude Shock Waves in a Tube
The objective of this project was to attempt to determine causes for the two types of rounding that had been observed. Two particular effects seemed pertinent to our experimental situation. Whenever sound waves propagate ...
The Design and Construction of an Automatic Interferometer
The idea of building an automatic interferometer :. stemmed from a specific problem. During the generation of complex optical surfaces there occurs a certain stage in the process of fine grinding at which the use of ...
The Design and Construction of a Helium Dewar System
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER IS TO PRESENT ASPECTS OF THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A HELIUM DEWAR SYSTEM. AN EXTENSIVE BACKGROUND SECTION PRESENTS THE READER WITH A FOUNDATION IN THE PROBLEMS OF DEWAR SYSTEM DESIGN. THE ...
Relaxation Time in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Absorption
The experiment under consideration in this paper attempts to measure the relaxation time of protons in samples of water doped with varying concentrations of paramagnetic ions. The specific technique used in this experiment ...
Experiments in Fluid Dynamics
This paper is a report on work done with the flow of water through two types of constraining devices. These constraining devices are pipes which have a circular cross-section and ducts which have a rectangular cross-section.
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Relaxation Time
The purpose of this particular experiment is to study a property of nuclear magnetic resonance, the characteristic relaxation time of the protons in water, in the presence of paramagnetic ions. The experiment 1s based ...
Angular Correlation Studies of the Successive Gamma-Gamma Cascade in Cobalt 60
The purpose of this thesis was to design and set up with the available equipment, an experiment that could be used to determine the angular momentum of excited nuclear states through gamma-gamma angular correlation studies.
The Influence of Temperature on D.C. Resistance of Pure Lead Wire
The purpose of my work has been to investigate the resistivity of lead wire as a function of temperature.
Temperature Sensing and Regulation in Experimental Physics with Specific Applicaitons
This project is a support to the research being done currently by Dr. Fenner at Kalamazoo College. His experiment is a study of high frequency sound absorption in various mixtures of liquids. These studies are to be done ...
