Lab Assignment Sheet Exploring Springs, Scales, and Hooke’s Law (Week 9) Name: Aliza Anderson Date: 06/17/20 Observables: Spring will stretch Spring will bounce back I apply a force to move the IOLab unit, and the unit will move Measureables: The force on the sensor The displacement of the spring Constants: The spring Problem Statement: How does force depend on displacement? Prediction: The force will be proportional to the displacement, with a positive, linear relationship Procedure : 1. Attach spring to force sensor on IOLab, and other of spring to a fixed location on a flat plane 2. Move the IOLab back and forth several times, taking advantage of the force and wheel sensors Tools: IOLab Spring Fixed anchor Diagram of Apparatus : Data Table with Units: PHYS 1010 – page 1
