M9 Simple Harmonic Motion (PHY 158) this lab you will accomplish the following tasks: In this lab you will accomplish the following tasks: 1. Suspend a mass m from the end of the spring. Set the mass- spring system to oscillate and measure the period of oscillation T as pg y p function of mass m 2. Measure the damping of the oscillation in the spring-mass system 3. Set a pendulum of length to oscillate. Measure the period of oscillation T as function of Oscillating (page 1) Tacoma Bridge

Section V3 m C 1 C N 60 T k 2 N m PASCO counter/ timer In this section you will measure the period of oscillation of of the spring-mass system as function of the mass . The measurement is carried out as follows: ou will measure the number of oscilla T m ons during a fixed time interval 60 You will measure the number N tions during a fixed time interval 60 s. 60 1 The period The number is given by: Here C output of the 2 t C TN N N  PASCO counter/timer. See the data tables for counter/timer settings.
