Experiment 8:simple harmonic motionAlma RomeroJuly 8th, 2018(Lab Partners- Martin Alvarez, George Said, Alex Votypka)1.Hooke's law states: F=-kx k here is a constant-- the tautness of a spring. x is the variable. So, forceincreases as the distance. This means that the further away from an equilibrium point denotedwhen x=0 here the more the spring will pull the towards the equilibrium point.2.Spring constant is just a number we give for how much a spring resists to changes when weapply force to it compression or expansion. In other words, if you hold a spring up and put aweight at the bottom, it will stretch out a little, that "stretch" is the spring constant.3.Hooke's Law states that the restoring force of a spring is directly proportional to a smalldisplacement. In equation form, we write F = -kx where x is the size of the displacement. Theproportionality constant k is specific for each spring. The object of this virtual lab is to determine
