Physics 2048 Lab Report Lab 1: Laboratory Fundamentals and Data Analysis Date Due: September 9, 2010 Introduction and Abstract: The purpose of the experiment was to prove the affects of Hooke’s law which is the measure of the elastic limit of a spring. The displacement of the spring due to the force from the weights was

measured to be the following: 1) .205kg=.011 2).0307kg=.011 3).0408kg=.010 4).0701kg=.023 5).907kg=.022. In this lab the student will learn the purpose of taking data, become familiar with the standards of measurement, learn the basics of the analysis of a data set, and learn how to determine and report errors in measurements. In this experiment we measured weights and found their displacements according to their mass. With this data we found the force and plotted with respect to the displacement. Diagram :
