James Montgomery Physics 326 Section 04 October 27, 2011 LAB 6: Damped Simple Harmonic Motion Introduction: Harmonic motion is a repeated motion that resets itself in a cycle. This cycle is able to maintain itself for a while due to its self-sustaining nature. This lab aims to study the relations of force, acceleration, velocity, position and period of a mass undergoing these harmonic cycles as well as the effect of damping. Experimental Method: Firstly, both the force transducer and motion detector must be synced with the LabPro interface as well as the LoggerPro program. Then, the force transducer is suspended off the lab table with the motion detector on the floor directly beneath it. A mass is then suspended from the force transducer with a spring between them and a measurement of the static position and force are taken with only the mass holder. These are the initial measurements from which the next steps are to be qualified with. Next, 5 weights are added, one at a time, and each static position and force is
