Terrell & Kenya Spring Lab Format 11/11/19 Objective: Calculate the “K” value for the rubber band and spring by finding the forces, oscillations, T period, and the “K” value. Background: A: An ideal spring is remarkable in the sense that it is a system where the generated force is linearly dependent on how far it is stretched. Hooke's law describes this behavior, and you would like to verify this in lab today. Hooke's Law states that to extend a string by an amount Δx from its previous position, one needs a force F which is determined by F = kΔx. Hooke’s Law states that FS = −kΔx: where k is the spring constant, which is a quality particular to each spring, and Δx is the distance the spring is stretched or compressed. The spring force FS is a restorative force and its direction is opposite to the direction of the spring’s displacement Δx. To verify Hooke's Law, you must show that the spring force FS and the distance the spring is stretched Δx are proportional to each other (that just

    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.
