Unformatted text preview: Randy Brackins Experiment #10 Date of Experiment: 11/12/09 Date of Submission: 11/19/09 Experiment # 10 Oscillations: Spring Mass Systems Purpose: The purpose of this lab experiment to examine the motion of a certain masses oscillating upon a spring hung vertically from a support. Hooke's Law states that when a mass is added to a spring its length increases by x-x . The spring then will exert a force given by the following equation: F=-k(x-x ) The x-x is the distance the spring is pulled downward while k is the spring constant. The spring constant should be negative due to the downward pull of the weight. Apparatus: This lab experiment consists mainly of a spring that hangs vertically from the force sensor hook. The force sensor measures the downward force of the spring when a mass has been attached to the other end of the spring. The results from the force sensor will then travel to the computer enhanced with the Data Studio Software. The main purpose of the lab stand is to hold these components in place. The purpose of Studio Software....
