Apparatus Construction, Measurements, and Data Handling

  • Gilbert Kivenson


Some inventors have succeeded because they possessed an extraordinarily high degree of mechanical skill in addition to their innovative abilities. Others, less inclined to mechanical construction, have delegated the building of their apparatus to artisans over whom they kept close watch. Still others have used clever substitutions and have avoided the need for precisely made components. And finally, there have been those with great talent in the careful conducting of experiments. Even though they used relatively crude apparatus, they were able to obtain meaningful and significant results.
