Springs & Hooke’s Law Hooke’s Law states that the force a spring exerts on a hanging object is proportional to the displacement, or stretch, of the spring, due to the attached weight. This experiment involved trials to test and compare spring constants to their theoretical values. In addition, spring constants for springs in a series and in parallel were explored. The results of the testing support Hooke’s Law for springs, but also suggests that it is not applicable to non-spring, but spring-like objects.

Objective: The goal of the experiment is to compare the experimental and theoretical spring constants for a set of springs and spring-like objects. Procedure: Part 1: Begin by hanging a spring from the support stand and measure the initial position (length). Add masses in steps of 100g and measure the displacement for each added weight. Use the Graphical Analysis program to plot Force vs. Stretch.

    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.
