We are using a pendulum to investigate simple harmonic motion. Specifically we are measuring the spring constant of the spring. This is then used in comparison to the spring constant obtained by Hook’s Law. Procedure: First you need to consider that throughout this experiment you will be using Hooke’s Law to determine the spring constant. Load the spring with a specific amount of weights and measure the extension of the end of the spring from its original unweighted position( Note Record the distance from the attachment point of the spring to the end of the spring with no mass on the spring. Once that distance is obtained it can be used to find the actual length of elongation. In the case of just the holder, you do ten trials, allowing M1, to fall to the floor starting at rest from a specified height (constant throughout the trials), h. Record the time it takes for M1 to go from its specified height to the floor. For the holder plus the disk, you do at
