The Cavendish Experiment: estimating the Universal Gravitational Constant

Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
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.
