Need help with Picoscope experiment

Post by LividBark » Mon Nov 10, 2014 9:34 am

Hey guys,
So I'm doing an experiment in Physics and it involves having to drop a magnet down a tube, going through two coils which send a signal to the PicoScope software which will allow me to determine 'g'. I have no problem setting up the physical equipment, however I have never used this software before and was wondering if someone could tell me how I would be able to set it up to do this (I only know I need to use a 'Single Trigger Event')

Here is a link to the experiment: ... celeration

Thanks a lot.

Hi LividBark,

I would suggest adjusting the collection time/timebase and the number of samples collected per waveform (highlighted in yellow in the image of a PicoScope 6 display below).

Which version of the software and PicoScope device are you using?

There are a number of videos available that show how to use PicoScope 6 features such as
