## Description

### Overview

This complete manual is included with the 550 Universal Physics System (UI-5830). Each experiment consists of student instructions in a Word® document that the instructor can modify as they like, a PASCO Capstone setup file ready for data collection, a Capstone file with sample data, and all the lab equipment required for the experiment. All of this content is provided on a flash drive.
