Springs and Hooke’s Law Objective: The objective of this experiment was to test Hooke’s law of springs. It was also to gain a better understand of the static prosperities of springs and springy objects. Also to determine how springs interact with each other. Experimental Procedures: For the first experiment involving one constant spring several procedures are taken in the data collection. The first spring is hung and identified. Record the initial hanging height from the top coil of the spring in comparison to the meter stick. Next, in steps of 100 grams up to 1 kilograms measure the corresponding displacement of the spring. Then in the Science Workshop plot the weight (N) vs. stretch (m). For the second spring follow of the same steps identically. Then in the Science Workshop plot another graph for the second nearly identical spring as weight (N) vs. stretch (m). For the rest of the experiments the rotational motion detector is utilized as a linear sensor to measure the data. Open the pre-set experiment file for the "spring lab".

    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.
