Setup: A large table supported set up was used. A large table clamp supported a tape timer a certain distance off the floor.

Brief description of procedure: Obtain approxamately 60cm of tape. Form a loop at one end of the tape and feed the other end of the tape through the timing unit. While holding the top of the tape attach a 200g mass to the loop. Turn the timing unit to 40 Hz and release the tape. Remove the mass and tape down the tape to the workbench.
