Abstract Title: Cavendish Balance
Abstract: The computerized Cavendish balance from TEL-Atomic will be demonstrated. The basic operation of the unit will be demonstrated, as well as sample data provided. The unit uses an innovative capacitive sensor to eliminate much of the noise associated with the traditional setup. Data is collected and analyzed via computer. In addition, a derivation is provided that allows the calculation of G from dynamic data, allowing the experiment to be completed in a single lab period.
