CSC 199 Assignment: Measures of Heaven and Earth

Continuing the topic discussed in class, research the determination of the physical constant or quantity assigned to you, and be prepared to present your results to the class. Include the accuracy of the values obtained. As usual, prepare a report to hand in. If you do not understand a method you find mentioned, do additional research until you do understand the details. You should be able to describe to the class, in broad outline, what tools or devices are needed to make the measurements, and, for original measurements, how these tools could be constructed.
