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. Part 2:
