Tracker Video Modeling with Spreadsheets 

written by Douglas Brown and Wolfgang Christian

The Tracker Video Modeling with Spreadsheets tutorial shows how to overlay spreadsheet model data on a video clip to compare theoretical predictions with real experiments. The complete tutorial, including video and spreadsheet, is packaged in a single Tracker zip file (balltoss-spreadsheet.trz) available on the OSP website. Download the Tracker zip file to any computer that has Tracker (and Java) installed and double click the TRZ file to open it. This will load the video into Tracker and open the associated Excel spreadsheet so that you can follow the instructions in this tutorial.
