Dip circle - Erik Josefsson - 11-26-2021

Hello!

I would like to use my phone as a Dip circle: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dip_circle

It would be nice to be able to "see" the difference between the inclination of the earths magnetic field and the orientation of the earth's acceleration, and, for example, try to hold your phone in exactly perpendicular to the earth's magnetic field.

I guess this is well within reach if you combine what phyphox already provides:

https://phyphox.org/wiki/index.php/Experiment:_Inclination

https://phyphox.org/wiki/index.php/Sensor:_Magnetic_field

But how?

I guess a structured answer to that question could become a nice "How To Program You Own Phyphox Experiment" manual.

Best regards.

//Erik

Just to learn phyphox language with 100 examples already existing...

This approach, https://twitter.com/DocWhalley/status/1293847649632817152, is quite illustrative. If you turn the smartphone upside down, so that the z-compenent gets positive, the magnetic field goes from the bottom to the top of the smartphone.

The source code of the “internal” phyphox experiments is in a GitHub repository, https://github.com/phyphox/phyphox-experiments, and you could directly load it in https://phyphox.org/editor/ – and adapt most of them there. Please note that a substantial part of these files are translation, so they are less worrisome as they potentially appear…

There are some specialised experiments in our wiki, some more in our news blog, and quite a lot here, in the forum. Organising these is a huge item on our todo list, unfortunately.

Yes! Exactly like that, but without having to use the protractor on the table (or the table).

Best regards.

Thank you Jens! Exactly what I was looking for.

Best regards.
