PHYS 15200 Mechanics IUPUI Physics Department Lab08: Simple Harmonic Motion Page 1 of 2 Lab 08: Simple Harmonic Motion OBJECTIVE In this experiment you will be measuring the spring constant of a Hooke’s law spring by two different methods. You will then compare your results to check whether the two methods yield the same result. This experiment is adapted from Vernier Physics with Computers experiments using Logger Pro . EQUIPMENT computer ring stand, rod, and clamp Vernier computer interface Logger Pro Vernier Motion Detector spring mass hanger wire basket set of standard slotted masses rubber bands meter stick electronic balance Figure 1 PROCEDURE 1. Hang the large spring to the support bracket. Place the motion detector on the floor directly below it. Place the wire basket over the detector to protect it (Figure 1). 2. Place a 100-gram slotted mass on the hanger and secure it with a rubber band. Measure the total mass of the loaded hanger and record its value in your data table. 3. Hook the hanger to the bottom of the spring. Adjust the support until the bottom of the
