Lab Course 103A -Section 006 Physics Laboratory ReportLab number and Title:Lab B1: Simple Harmonic MotionName: Carlos SkerrettGroup members: Nicholas Ramirez,Gerome Garses, Shail Sheth,Conor Mccan,Erin HeidlebergerExperiment Date : 3-3-17Instructor’s name: Sizhan Liu1. OBJECTIVES1. To determine the spring constant k by stretching the spring and applying Hooke’s Law2. To verify that the period of vibration of a body on a spring is independent of the amplitude3. To measure the period T of a simple pendulum as a function of the length L of the pendulum, and to verify that is given by2. THEORETICAL BACKGROUNDWhen a body of mass m is suspended on a coil spring constant k, and if the spring is stretched or compressed from its equilibrium position through a displacement s, the spring exerts on the body a force a force that is proportional to the displacement and given by Hooke’s law.Procedure:Part 1:1.Clamp one meter stick in a vertical position. Hang the spring at the groove of the rod and carefully record the position y0of the bottom spring. Then hang the 50g
