Lab Manual Errata – Week 6 7.1 p. 65 In addition to Equation (7.1), Hooke's law is also written as F spring = -k Δ x , where F spring is the force exerted by the spring on an object attached to it. 7.2 p. 66 Step 2 – Do not weigh the masses until after you have put the tape on them. p. 66 Step 3 – Do not tape or clip the spring to the hook unless necessary. Make sure the ruler is oriented so that the readings increase downward toward the ground. p. 66 Step 4 – If you are using the toughest springs, use 20 g increments, taking a total of 10 measurements, but do not add more than 200 g to the mass holder. After incrementing the mass load to the maximum, decrement the load going back down using the same mass combinations and record this data as well. Now you should have 20 data points plus the equilibrium point. As a tip for sharing weights, note that if you have five masses that measure 10 g, 20 g, 20 g, 50 g, and 100 g, you can combine them to make 20 g, 40 g, 60 g, …, 200 g.

    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.
