Unformatted text preview: 7. Test the series with two different amounts of weights by going through the same procedure. 8. Then make the two springs run parallel to each other. 9. Do the same tests and procedures as before. 10. Do it with two different amounts of weights. 11. Record results on the data sheet. Conclusions: After all the tests and calculations we found that our k series equals 2.835. Our k parallel equals 10.075. We also found that k1k2/(k1+k2)=3.03 and that k1+k2=12.12. Our results are fairly close to what they should be. The problems and reasons that the numbers are a little off could be from the measuring. It was difficult to get an accurate measurement under the conditions and using to tools that we did....
