Use Excel or Logger Pro to plot the weight of the hanging mass (in newtons) along the vertical axis versus the displacement of the spring along the horizontal axis. Add a trendline and display the equation on the graph. Print it and staple it to this worksheet when you turn it in. Slope of trendline = spring constant = Lab08: Simple Harmonic Motion N/m Page 1 of 2 PHYS 15200 Mechanics IUPUI Physics Department 2. Use Excel or Logger Pro to create another plot in which the square of the angular frequency (in rad2/s2) is along the vertical axis and the reciprocal of the total hanging mass (in kg-1) is along the horizontal axis. Add a trendline and display the equation on the graph. Print it and staple it to this worksheet when you turn it in. Slope of trendline = spring constant = N/m 3. Calculate the percent error between your two values for the spring constant in Questions 1 and 2. Take the value found in Question 1 as the accepted value. % error = % Would you say that the two values agree? Explain. Lab08: Simple Harmonic Motion Page 2 of 2 ...
