|Title||Position function of mass on spring|
|Simulations||Massa dan Pegas|
|Keywords||position function, energy, oscillations|
|Description||The main intent of the question is to get the students to connect the abstract functional representation of simple harmonic motion with the actual behaviour of masses on springs. Its pedagogical value is probably improved if other questions on the assignment explicitly require the students to use the concepts explored in this question, but in more abstract manners.|
|Level||Undergraduate - Intro, High School|
