Conduct the following experiment using either a VCR or a tape deck equipped with a digital tape-counter. Put a tape in the unit, set the tape-counter to zero, and, as you start the tape playing, note the time. Then record the time every 5 to 10 minutes along with the number on the tape-counter. This data set was obtained in this way. It shows the number of revolutions—the number on the tape-counter—(second column) as a function of time in seconds (first column).
