Jessika PallaresPhysics 20300-LL1Anna TsatskinaNovember 24, 2019Lab #6 Simple Harmonic MotionINTRODUCTION:The purpose of this laboratory experiment is the be able to verify certain basic relationships that govern the simple harmonic motion of a mass on a spring. We will be able to verify this by studying the simple harmonic motion of a mass hanging from a spring by using a motion detector. Through the use of multiple methods, we’ll be able to prove that there are certain basic relationships that allow for simple harmonic motion of a mass on a spring to happen. Not only were we able to use Logger Pro to detect the motion, we were also able to find the height that the mass attached to the spring reached. Throughout the entirety of the experiment, we had a multitude of variables, which included mass and amplitude. Simply just changing the mass and the amplitude wouldn’t be able to give us solid proof as to which would have an effect on spring motion and which one doesn’t. In order to get certain proof, we tested for the effect of mass by using different masses with a constant amplitude throughout this mini experiment. Then we did the opposite: check for the effect of amplitude by changing the amplitude and keeping the mass constant. We were able to find the experimental value to be within the level of uncertainty of our experiment from the accepted value.PREDICTIONS:
For this portion, we sketched predictions for the following graphs:EXPERIMENT 1: EQUILIBRIUMA) PROCEDURE:
For this part of the experiment, hang a 1.000kg mass from the bottom of the spring, making sure that the mass isn't moving. With this, we want to draw a free body diagram, as well as calculating the spring constant, k.B) DATA:EXPERIMENT 2: INITIAL OBSERVATIONSA) PROCEDURE:
For starters, make sure you're hanging a 1.000 kg mass from the spring. With this,set up the Logger Pro to plot the following graphs:Position vs. timeVelocity vs. timeAcceleration vs. timeCollect a set of data with the mass at rest. Make sure to jot down the equilibrium position of the mass. Pull the mass down a few centimeters from the equilibrium

### What students are saying

• 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.
