Lab 2: Introduction to Testing, Measurement, and Data Acquisition

In this lab, LabVIEW is used as an instructor's aid to develop lab exercises and lab setups that introduce students to testing, measurement, and data acquisition. The overall goal is to provide students with a general background in taking measurements for scientific and engineering applications. The lab exercises require the students to write and/or run simple LabVIEW programs.
