Abstract

Electronic analog computers are being increasingly used today in physics (1, 2), mathematics (3), and engineering (4), and we believe they are valuable as an instructional aid in a college physics department. We have found that the construction of this computer illustrated important electronic principles to our students, motivated them in their study of differential equations, gave them techniques that can be applied to problem-solving on any analog computer, and provided them solutions of some of the important equations of physics.
