Introduction The laboratory experiment is designed to give an understanding of how vibrations function. The laboratory experimentation consists of a small carriage that slides along the x-axis with very low friction. Mass is then added to the carriage and then attached to a spring, with a spring coefficient k . The carriage then needs to be pressed against the spring to compress it for a certain distance and then the carriage is released and the spring causes vibrations that eventually stop. A computer is hooked up to the laboratory setup and a computer program is used to measure the displacement of the carriage at a certain time. The computer program analyzes the frequency and the period of the vibrations for each test or the laboratory experiment and is illustrated in graphs that the computer program creates. Using the graphs, a wide variety of information can be found about the vibration such as its amplitude and natural frequency. In the experiment there will be a
