Physics Labs for Scientists and Engineers - Mechanics is an independent collection of 11 lab experiments created and extensively class-tested by the physics department at North Carolina State University. These customizable experiments feature embedded videos, and they were designed in a unique fashion that utilizes technology including the MyTech smartphone app, Audacity, Excel spreadsheets and Windows Movie Maker. Additionally, the traditional lab manual material (objectives, background, procedure, etc.) is built right into the Inlab questions rather than existing as a separate publication.
