86 - Damping and Friction Coefficients


Measurements are made with the smartphone: first, the damping of a various amount of damping layers (e.g. sheets of paper) is investigated, and second, the coefficient of friction on an inclined plane is calculated for different weights.


  • Smartphone
  • numerous identical sheets of paper
  • an inclined plane (eg wood plate)
  • a ball (table tennis)
  • an object that can be made of different weights (e.g. medium-sized plastic box)
