LAB B Mehar Ghei LABORATORY EXPERIMENT REPORT Name: Mehar Ghei Group Members: Nicole Tran, Yvonne Chen, Nakib Junayed Experiment Date: Tuesday, November 30 th , 2010 Course Name: PHYS 111A Section: H01 Instructor: Beidi He LABORATORY #B Simple Harmonic Motion 1. OBJECTIVE - To determine the spring constant k by stretching the spring and applying Hooke’s Law. - To verify that the period of vibration of a body on a spring is independent of the amplitude, and is given by: = T 2πmk - To measure the period T of a simple pendulum as a function of the length L of the pendulum and to verify that it is given by: = T 2πLg 2. THEORETICAL BACKGROUND =- F ks = F mg =- mg ks 3. EQUIPMENT The equipment used for both parts of this lab: Spring Masses Rods Meter stick Hanger Timer Page 1 of 5
