The repository contains:
1. a video with an overview of the experimental setup
2. a video capture of the actual experiment.
3. the pdf handout to do the experiment and to run you through the theory.

Tracking the dot on the screen, and then fitting the correct solution to the damped harmonic oscillation results in an estimate of G, the universal gravitational constant.
