  • Fakkema, Douglas (1983)
    William Berkson calls Hertz's discovery of electromagnetic waves a "major turning point in the history of mankind, both socially and intellectually." While this may be an overstatement of the case, there can be little doubt ...
  • Eldoy, Jomar (1983)
    The objective of this project was through experimentation determining the heat flow through a double pane window. In itself, the project was not very complicated. It is not hard to realize the concepts involved in finding ...
  • Fitzgerald, Dennis (1983)
    The multiple expansion is a mathematical technique used to calculated the electric potential of discrete or continuous, moving or static charge distributions. The technique has wide range of applicability and can also be ...
  • Owvor, Victor Otieno (1984)
    In discussing a sparsely used phrase like artificial intelligence ( A I ) one has to agree to a definition , from amongst many, of what it actually means . A I is the ability of machines to do things that people would say ...
  • Posewitz, Allen (1984)
    The original idea of this project was to understand and gain experience working with nuclear detectors. That objective has been accomplished, but all of the details will not be presented here. Most of it makes rather dry ...
  • Russell, Paul (1984)
    This project began with the idea that the Canberra multichannel analyzer could be interfaced with an Apple II computer. This would allow raw data from the analyzer to be fed directly into the Apple for storage, graphing ...
  • Ambrose, Steve (1984)
    The first person accredited with the discovery of the surface photoelectric effect was Heinrich Hertz in 1887. Ironically Hertz made his discovery while verifying the electromagnetic theory of light. During the course ...
  • Jones, Mark (1984)
    This thesis shows the program written for Raytracing.
  • Jordan, Marc (1985)
    To measure the speed of objects with erratically varying paths, we have designed and constructed a sixty channel photogate. This photogate plugs into the gameport of the Apple II microcomputer, thus permitting us to take ...
  • Benedetti, Cathleen (1985)
    Isolation (with an Q, not a U), simply put, is the amount of incoming solar radiation received at a surface, and is influenced by two groups of factors. The first group includes those factors which influence the insolation ...
  • Tawiah, Edmund K. (1985)
    The LINEAR MOTOR, known in one form or another since the turn of the century, did not attract much interest until recently. Although its use in launching aircraft from ship decks was investigated and even applied in practice ...
  • Schumann, Thomas (1985)
    Shadow bands are a little known and seldom viewed natural phenomena associated mainly with solar eclipses. That they exist has been known for years and expeditions of observers to solar eclipse sites have been prepared for ...
  • Ahten, Michael Jay (1985)
    Measuring the permittivity of free space, and so, indirectly the speed of light using the Maxwell commutator Bridge (fig. 1), is a challenging undergraduate experiment described in the Taylor Manual for Advanced Undergraduate ...
  • Langevin, Mike (1986)
    In many areas of science there is a need to know the rate energy gain by a system. The emphasis of this project will be to address the means of measurement of the electromagnetic flux in the upper visible and near infra-red ...
  • Nutt, Thomas (1986)
    The galton board, named after the statistician, Frances Galton, is an apparatus used to demonstrate binomial distributions. The board is slanted with a studded triangle array of pegs. At the base of the boared catches are ...
  • Hutcherson, Bill (1986)
    This project is a program logic manual for the Physics Department's Spectrometer Interface at Willamette.
  • Yourkowski, Richard (1986)
    During my career as a physics student experienced many interesting things but none of these has excited me more than holography. Most people have seen or heard of holography but most know little about it or it's application. ...
  • Curtis, Kenneth (1986)
    To compare resistivity measurement methods (capacitance - voltage Schottky, Capacitance - Voltage MOS capacitor, spreading resistance probe) using Intel's capacitance-voltage MOS capacitor system and Solecon Lab's spreading ...
  • Delanty, Edward J. Jr. (1986)
    Talbot's bands are produced if, when viewing a continuous spectrum with a spectroscope, a thin piece of glass is placed between the eye and eyepiece, so as to cover one half of the pupil. The bands are a series of dark ...
  • Fukuchi, Steve (1986)
    Holographic Interferometry is the union of the three dimensional behavior of holography and the highly precise measurement of interferometry. Holographic Interferometry uses the coherent wave from a reference source and ...
