  Abstract: In this poster we’ll present results from using accelerometers in devices such as tablets and smartphone to measure systems which are typically measured with video analysis. We allow the device itself to be the accelerating mass - which we call a “smart mass” – in systems such as Atwood’s machine or moment of inertia measurements.
