George Johnson tells the stories of ten beautiful experiments which changed the world. From Galileo singing to mark time as he measured the pull of gravity and Newton carefully inserting a needle behind his own eye, to Joule packing a thermometer on his honeymoon to take the temperature of waterfalls and Michelson recovering from a dark depression to discover that light moves at the same speed in every direction - these ten dedicated men employed diamonds, dogs, frogs and even their own bodies as they worked to discover the laws of nature and of the universe.

Devising and performing a scientific experiment is an art, and it is common to hear scientists talk about the 'beauty' of an experiment. What does this mean in chemistry, the experimental science par excellence? And what are the most beautiful chemical experiments of all time? This book offers ten suggestions for where beauty might reside in experimental chemistry. In some cases the beauty lies in the clarity of conception; sometimes it is a feature of the instrumental design. But for chemistry, there can also be a unique beauty in the way atoms are put together to make new molecules, substances not known in nature. The ten experiments described here offer a window into the way that chemists think and work, and how what they do affects the rest of science and the wider world. This book aims to stimulate the reader to think anew about some of the relationships and differences between science and art, and to challenge some of the common notions about particular 'famous experiments'. Elegant Solutions: Ten Beautiful Experiments in Chemistry is accessible to all readers, including those without a scientific background and can provide an unusual point of entry into some of the basic concepts of chemistry. Phillip Ball is a renowned, prolific, award winning science writer.

The third edition of Measurement and Data Analysis for Engineering and Science provides an up-to-date approach to presenting the methods of experimentation in science and engineering. Widely adopted by colleges and universities within the U.S. and abroad, this edition has been developed as a modular work to make it more adaptable to different approaches from various schools. This text details current methods and highlights the six fundamental tools required for implementation: planning an experiment, identifying measurement system components, assessing measurement system component performance, setting signal sampling conditions, analyzing experimental results, and reporting experimental results. What’s New in the Third Edition: This latest edition includes a new chapter order that presents a logical sequence of topics in experimentation, from the planning of an experiment to the reporting of the experimental results. It adds a new chapter on sensors and transducers that describes approximately 50 different sensors commonly used in engineering, presents uncertainty analysis in two separate chapters, and provides a problem topic summary in each chapter. New topics include smart measurement systems, focusing on the Arduino® microcontroller and its use in the wireless transmission of data, and MATLAB® and Simulink® programming for microcontrollers. Further topic additions are on the rejection of data outliers, light radiation, calibrations of sensors, comparison of first-order sensor responses, the voltage divider, determining an appropriate sample period, and planning a successful experiment. Measurement and Data Analysis for Engineering and Science also contains more than 100 solved example problems, over 400 homework problems, and provides over 75 MATLAB® Sidebars with accompanying MATLAB M-files, Arduino codes, and data files available for download.

A combination of two texts authored by Patrick Dunn, this set covers sensor technology as well as basic measurement and data analysis subjects, a combination not covered together in other references. Written for junior-level mechanical and aerospace engineering students, the topic coverage allows for flexible approaches to using the combination book in courses. MATLAB® applications are included in all sections of the combination, and concise, applied coverage of sensor technology is offered. Numerous chapter examples and problems are included, with complete solutions available.

Presenting the fundamental tools of experimentation that are currently used by engineers and scientists, Measurement and Data Analysis for Engineering and Science, Second Edition covers the basics of experimentation, hardware of experiments, and methods of data analysis. It also offers historical perspectives throughout. Updating and reorganizing its popular predecessor, this second edition makes the text much easier to follow and enhances the presentation with electronic material. New to the Second Edition Order of chapters now reflects the sequence of topics usually included in an undergraduate course Asterisked sections denote material not typically covered formally during lecture in an introductory undergraduate course More than 150 new problems, bringing the total to over 420 problems Supplementary website that provides unit conversions, learning objectives, review crossword puzzles and solutions, differential equation derivations, laboratory exercise descriptions, MATLAB® sidebars with M-files, and homework data files Thorough and up to date, this edition continues to help students gain a fundamental understanding of the tools of experimentation. It discusses basic concepts related to experiments, measurement system components and responses, data analysis, and effective communication of experimental findings. Ancillary materials for instructors are available on a CD-ROM and a solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors. More data available on www.nd.edu/~pdunn/www.text/measurements.html

Measurement and Data Analysis for Engineering and Science, Fourth Edition, provides up-to-date coverage of experimentation methods in science and engineering. This edition adds five new "concept chapters" to introduce major areas of experimentation generally before the topics are treated in detail, to make the text more accessible for undergraduate students. These feature Measurement System Components, Assessing Measurement System Performance, Setting Signal Sampling Conditions, Analyzing Experimental Results, and Reporting Experimental Results. More practical examples, case studies, and a variety of homework problems have been added; and MATLAB and Simulink resources have been updated.
