I. Objective: To determine the spring constant l by stretching the spring and applying Hooke’s law, to verify that the period of vibration of a body on a spring is independent of the amplitude, and to measure the period T of a simple pendulum as a function of length L of a pendulum. II. Background Information: Simple harmonic motion is a type of periodic motion where the restoring force is directly proportional to the displacement. For a mass on a spring: T=2 m ( ¿¿ k ) π ¿ For a pendulum: T=2 L ( ¿¿ g ) π ¿ mg=k ∆ y III. Experimental Setup: A cylindrical spring is hung at the groove on the rod and then the meter stick is hung beside it so that stretching of the spring can be visually observed. The stop watch is used to measure the time. The pendulum is also hung at the groove of the rod for periodic measurement using a stopwatch.

### What students are saying

• 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.
