Lab Course 103A -Section 006 Physics Laboratory Report Lab number and Title: Lab B1: Simple Harmonic Motion Name: Carlos Skerrett Group members: Nicholas Ramirez, Gerome Garses, Shail Sheth, Conor Mccan, Erin Heidleberger Experiment Date : 3-3- 17 Instructor’s name: Sizhan Liu 1. OBJECTIVES 1. To determine the spring constant k by stretching the spring and applying Hooke’s Law 2. To verify that the period of vibration of a body on a spring is independent of the amplitude 3. 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 by 2. THEORETICAL BACKGROUND When 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 y 0 of the bottom spring. Then hang the 50g
