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". First,
