9780521428675: IBM-PC in the Laboratory

This book is about how microcomputers can be used to help control and interface with sensors in laboratory experiments. The computer work is done mostly in the context of several physics experiments, such as the physics of activation temperature, heat diffusion, and motion in fluids. These experiments show how with computer control conceptually sophisticated experiments can be performed with simple apparati. The authors explain how the computer interfaces with common sensing devices, including digital-to-analog coverter, analog-to-digital converter, timers, digital input and output devices, optical encoders, stepping motors, and analog amplifiers, to provide a link between the experimenter and the physical phenomena being studied. The authors chose the IBM-PC, AT, or XT (which can apply to clones as long as they have expansion slots to accomodate boards) as their example, and use Turbo Pascal (Version 4.0 or greater) throughout the book for programming. Most of the programs will be presented by way of example, so some experience in computer programming is necessary. The equivalent of two semesters of college physics is also helpful to understand the experiments.

Book Description:

Physics experiments show how computer control can enable conceptually sophisticated experiments to be performed with relatively simple preparations in a text on the importance of microcomputer interface in the scientific laboratory.

From the Back Cover:

The primary object of this manual is to build an understanding of the principles of computer operations and the use of computers in the laboratory. The IBM-PC design is used as the basis for the book. This book is designed as a tutorial to be used in conjunction with laboratory work. It will be a valuable guide and reference for students who are familiar with first-year university physics and have some computing experience.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The primary object of this manual is to build an understanding of the principles of computer operations and the use of computers in the laboratory. While the development of applications for computers has been rapid since their introduction, the principles of computer operation and their use in sensing and control have remained stable. Those are the primary subjects of this book, throughout which a gradual understanding of what goes on inside a computer is developed. The laboratory provides a vital experience in linking theory with physical reality, and all of the computer work is done in the context of doing experiments. The IBM-PC design is used as the basis for the book. The internal design of this machine is slightly more complicated than earlier personal computers, but it is still simple enough to be quickly learned. The computer can be directly controlled by proper programming, and offers considerably more power than earlier designs. The IBM design also has expansion slots which make the addition of special hardware capabilities relatively simple, and provide a great flexibility in interfacing the machine to other equipment. The book, based on courses given at Cornell University, is designed as a tutorial to be used in conjunction with laboratory work. It will be a valuable guide and reference for students who are familiar with first-year university physics and have some computing experience. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521428675
