Description

In the last years, the use of smartphones as laboratory tools for school physics experiments has received attention for the possibility of carrying out a wide variety of didactic experiences with low-cost experimental equipment. In this contribution, we describe an experimental activity that can be carried out by using smartphones to investigate the oscillations of a damped oscillator made of an elastic rubber loop and a mass. This system allows one to obtain information on the viscoelastic properties of the rubber material.
