Ankit Patel Professor Hardy Partner: Shawn Becker Physics 1 Lab 10-27-10 Experiment 6: Vertical Spring Mass System Objective : The position, velocity, acceleration as functions of time and Newtons second law, F=ma are found from an oscillating spring-mass system to show that energy is conserved in the system. Data: All data tables and graphs stapled separately Analysis: Table 4: a) Measured values versus Derived Values: m (Kg) ΔW (% diff) ΔT (% diff) Δvm (% diff) Δam (% diff) ΔFm (% diff) .075 2.72 2.5 29 3.34 25.3 .105 4.18 4.25 8.9 55.05 15.9 The measured values versus derived values for the most part are fairly close to each other. The only large differences that can be seen is with the velocity of the .075 mass and the acceleration for the .105 mass. The acceleration result was very off due to the choppy readings the software recorded, which could have thrown the data off. The velocity result followed a similar path in why the results were off. b.) Potential and Kinetic Energy of .075 kg mass:
