In the above screen shot, the Alumina Disk sample is selected from the list of supplied ceramic samples shown in the Lab Kit module. When a sample is selected from the list, a control value (pretested data) is loaded automatically into the main screen of Buzz-o-sonic. The control data is displayed in blue to distinguish it from any measured values that would be shown in red. The student then tries to match the measured data to the control data.

1. Alumina (square plate or substrate)

2. High Alumina (cylinder)

3. High Alumina (square bar)
