Robert Crescenzi 11/5/10 Lab 125 Write-up 1. Title: Conservation of Energy Using Spring-Mass System 2. Objective: To verify the conservation of mechanical energy in an oscillating mass-spring system. 3. Background: For vertical oscillating spring: ME = ½mv^2 + ½k(x0 - x)^2 + mgx x0 = mg/k ME = ½mv^2 + ½k(mg/k - x)^2 + mgx ME = ½mv^2 + ½kx^2 + ((mg)^2)/2k h = x + h0 ME = ½mv^2 + ½(h - h0)^2 + ((mg)^2)/2k 4. Procedures: -( Part 1 ) Take at least 7 different measurements of the masses required to extend the spring to different lengths. Then plot the force by graphing mass (kg) vs. change in length of spring (m). the slope of the line is the spring constant which is in Newtons/meter.

    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.
