Unformatted text preview: m equals the mass of the system, and k is the spring constant. = T 2πmk = . . T 2π105 343 1525 T = 1.149 This equation gives us the experimental period (time) of oscillation. This T equals 1.2 This equation gives us the percent error Section 1 Our percent error in this lab was 2.959 Conclusion: This experiment’s purpose was to investigate the motion of a mass oscillating on a spring. The relationship between the equation for theoretical period correlates well with the data collected by the computer. The very small percent error 2.959% could have been caused by the usage of energy in the system and the air resistance that the system creates. A way to eliminate these errors is doing the experiment in a vacuum....
