Nonlinear Dynamics on the Cheap in the Junior Laboratory
written by Richard Krantz, Nick Hoen, Julie Zimmerman, Randall Tagg, and John Carlson
This past spring (2015) three of us (RK, RT, JC) team-taught a Junior level laboratory in which physics majors are required, over two semesters, to complete experiments in 8 out of 10 main topic areas of physics. As of the beginning of the spring 2015 semester, a satisfactory Mechanics/Nonlinear Dynamics experiment supplied with instructions had not been identified. Towards the end of the semester two Metropolitan State University of Denver students (NH, JZ) expressed an interest in investigating the nonlinear dynamics of Duffing's oscillator. Below, we describe the results of their efforts.
