The purpose of this report is to document the evolution of an experimental procedure. The specific experiment being addressed is a bifilar swinging experiment for the determination of the physical properties of a submarine model. However, the procedures developed in the course of this experiment are applicable to any type of model or object for which the physical properties must be known.
