  1. 3-026-S-SpringInverseProblem

    29 May 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We are given data on the position of a mass in an oscillating spring mass system and we seek to discover approaches to estimating an unknown parameter.

  2. 1-107-S-ClothDry

    27 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We build a mathematical model for the rate at which drying takes place in a cloth wet with water while hanging in air. A model can be based on underlying physical principles. Such a model is called an analytic model. Or your model could be based on observations and reasoned terms in your...

  4. 3-060-S-DataToDifferentialEquation

    24 Dec 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Sullivan, Kelly Cline

    Students use their knowledge of second-order linear differential equations in conjunction with physical intuition of spring-mass systems to estimate the damping coefficient and spring constant from data. The data is presented as {%5Cit total distance traveled} instead of displacement so the...
