Nishant Narang PHY 133- 02 10/27/09 Simple Harmonic Motion In this lab experiment, we will study the properties of basic harmonic motions on multiple mediums. Two sets of experiments are held on an air track with a glider connected to springs on both ends. Another experiment is with a ball on a string that is oscillating and the last experiment is a meter stick that is also oscillating about a pivot point. Equations: Procedure: 1) Measure the mass of the glider 2) Record the equilibrium position of the glider on the air track. 3) Attach a string to the glider and run it to the end of the air track. 4) Suspend a mass on the string so it is hanging off the air track along a pulley. 5) Release the mass so that it pulls on the string, which causes the glider to displace. 6) Measure the displacement of the glider and record it. 7) Repeat the experiment but with a different mass. 8) For the second experiment, remove the string and the masses and stick the mass onto the glider. 9) Set up motion timer on the computer and start oscillating the glider.
