Measuring Sound and Acceleration Using Only a Browser 

written by Wolfgang Christian

Mobile devices contain microphones, accelerometers, and gyroscopes that can record data using only a web browser.   We have developed three Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) using the EJS authoring tool to take advantage of these sensors and students' familiarity with their mobile devices.  Delivering them as PWAs, as well as traditional webpages, allows these apps to work off-line and to be installed on a user's home screen.  This talk demonstrates their use and how they can be installed from the Open Source Physics Collection on the AAPT-ComPADRE website.
