LAB REPORT FOR M9 EXPERIMENT: HARMONIC MOTION VI-1: In this experiment we explored different types of simple harmonic motion through various experiments designed to test different aspects of harmonic motion. For each different experiment data was collected and recorded. Each of the tables below contains the data and calculations for the corresponding experiments. V-1+2: for this part of the experiment we placed a mass at the bottom of a spring that was hanging freely. After recording the original length of the spring and the mass of the spring and mass holder we could then measure what effect the addition of mass to the bottom of the spring had on the springs’ length. Holder mass: M H = 50.1gm Spring mass: M S = 159.2gm Original length of spring: 49.6cm m (gm) (cm) L- (cm) 20 47.1 2.5 40 44.5 5.1 60 41.7 7.9 80 39.3 10.3 100 36.7 12.9 150 30.1 19.5 200 23.6 26.0 250 17.1 32.5 300 10.8 38.6 V-3: for this part of the experiment we were to vary the mass at the end of the spring and then count the number of oscillations in 60 seconds after a force was applied to the end of the mass. m is the mass on the hanger, m T is the total mass of the hanger plus the mass, C is the number of times the photogate was interrupted, N is the number of oscillations and T is the period of oscillation.
