Devin Seese 3409531 Joe Kinney Problem 1: Measuring Spring Constants Problem Description: In this problem, two tests were conducted. The first test consisted of multiple weights being hung from a single spring at a standstill, and the second test included multiple weights oscillating with the spring. This problem investigates spring constants (k) and compares the constant of a non oscillating spring and an oscillating spring. The spring constants were calculated for in each situation. First, two expressions were created; the first expression showed the relationship between the spring constant and the displacement of an object hanging from a spring, and the second expression showed the relationship between the spring constant and the period of oscillation of an object hanging from a spring. Second, the procedure for situation one was conducted. The length of the un -stretched spring was measured, weight was added to the spring seven separate times and each time weight and the length of the spring were recorded. This data was entered into Excel and a graph, equation, and spring constant were found. Thirdly, the second situation was conducted. As in the first procedure, weight was added to the spring and recorded seven separate times. The spring was completely compressed and then released. The spring oscillated ten times and the time interval was recorded. From

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
