Investigating the phenomenology of materials involve sensing devices in which electrical signals must be evaluated Observing physical phenomena with an electrical sensing device enables one to calibrate the dynamics of the electrical signal associated with the changes in the physical phenomenology oberved with that device. Applications in these laboratory-based measurement techniques include the Wheatstone bridge, current/voltage device characterization, the operational amplifier as an active filter, stress & strain, Newton's law of cooling, Stefan/Boltzman's law and the ideal gas law.
