The Physics Teacher
written by Douglas Brown and Anne Cox
The paper Innovative Uses of Video Analysis   describes several new video analysis and computational modeling experiments in mechanics, optics and thermal physics made possible by Tracker, a free, open-source video analysis tool.  Experiments include viewing and analyzing 2d collisions in a center of mass reference frame, modeling the air resistance force on falling cupcake cups, measuring thermal expansion using single-slit diffraction, and analyzing the emission spectra of lasers, gases, fluorescent dyes and fluorescent lamps.
