LAB B1 Tom Pampalone Page 1 of 5 LABORATORY EXPERIMENT REPORT Name: Tom Pampalone Group Members: Paulina, Ronard, Eric, Juan Experiment Date: Wednesday, April 20, 2011 Course Name: PHYS 106A Section: 008 Instructor: Professor Seman LABORATORY # B1 Simple Harmonic Motion 1. OBJEC T I V E The objective of this lab is to determine the spring constant k by stretching the spring and applying Hooke’s Law. 2. T H E OR E T ICAL BACKGROU N D When a body of mass m is suspended on a coil spring with spring constant k , and if the spring is stretched or compressed from its equilibrium position through a displacement s , the spring exerts on the body a force that is proportional to the displacement and given by Hooke’s Law: F = -ks , of which magnitude is F = ks If the spring is hung vertically, when the body is stationary, according to Newton’s First Law we know that: F = mg Therefore: mg = ks 3.
