I have two forms on a page.  One form has radio buttons.  All of the values of the radio buttons are equal to the values of Select Options on another form.  If a user clicks on one of the radio buttons on form 1  I want to automatically change the selected on form two to the that value of the radio button.

var sensorpick is from the raio button and $sensors is the ID of the Select on the second form:
$("#sensor-choose").change(function() {
	var sensorpick = $("input:radio[name='sensor-choose']:checked").val();
	$('#sensor option[value="' + sensorpick+ + '"]').prop('selected', true);

<form method="GET" id="sensor_finder">	
		if you already have a Coherent sensor or meter, please make your selection below.<br />
	<!--  START Find a Sensor  -->	
		<div class="form-control">
			<select name="sensor" id="sensors">
				<option value="">Find a Sensor</option>
				{exp:channel:entries channel="measurement" dynamic="no"}
					{if sensor_or_meter == "Sensor"}
						<option value="{measurement_product_name}">{measurement_product_name}</option>
