The real power of calculus is revealed when it is applied to actual physical problems. In this paper, we present a calculus inspired physics experiment suitable for high school and undergraduate programs. A model for the theory of the terminal velocity of a falling body subject to a resistive force is developed and its validity tested in an experiment of a falling magnet in a column of self-induced eddy currents. The presented method combines multiple physics concepts such as 1D kinematics, classical mechanics, electromagnetism and non-trivial mathematics. It offers the opportunity for lateral as well as project-based learning.

BACKGROUND: Conjugated polymers, especially those of the poly(phenylene vinylene) (PPV) family, are promising candidates as emission material in fight-emitting devices. The aim of this work was to investigate the dependence of the luminescence properties

Transport current-voltage (I-V) characteristics gathered over several orders of magnitude of current can reveal much about the loss mechanisms in high T(c) superconductors. This article describes the design and implementation of a novel, computer-control
