Title Energy Analysis of a Mass Oscillating on a Spring
Description Learning Goals Using a mass oscillating on a spring, students will be able to explain the distribution and transfer of different types of energy: kinetic, elastic potential, gravitational potential, and thermal. Students will also be able to explain the Conservation of Mechanical Energy concept using kinetic, elastic potential, and gravitational potential energy of a mass oscillating on a spring. Students will study what happens when there is also thermal energy of a mass oscillating on a spring.
