Masses and Springs: Basics

Masses and Springs: Basics simulation


  • Вымярэнне
  • Перыядычны рух
  • Hooke's Law

Sample Learning Goals

  • Describe the natural length and equilibrium position in your own words.
  • Find the relationship between the mass, spring strength (spring constant), and stretch (displacement).
  • Design an experiment to determine the mass of a mystery object
  • Develop a method to measure the period.
  • Determine the factors which affect the period of oscillation.
  • Compare the gravity on Planet X to known benchmarks.
  • Describe the relationship between the velocity and acceleration vectors, and their relationship to motion, at various points in the oscillation.
