Title Hooke's Law (Springs)
Description Learning Goals Students will be able to explain how the displacement of a spring at rest is related to the mass of the object on the spring (which is called Hooke's Law). Students will be able to use the displacement of a spring at rest to determine the mass of unknown objects. Students will be able to explain how the displacement of a spring at rest is related to the acceleration of gravity of the planet the spring is on. Students will be able to use the displacement of a spring at rest to determine the acceleration of gravity of an unknown planet.
