Fill out the first row of the first data table, being sure to record the appropriate units in the column headings at the top. Note that weight = mass * gravity, but the mass must be converted to kilograms in order for the weight to be in newtons. In equilibrium, the spring force is equal to the weight attached to it. d. Remove the 50 g mass from spring 1, and attach one of the 100 g masses. Measure the distance that the spring is stretched, and fill out the second row of the data table. Repeat again for the 250 g mass, and record the results in the third row. e. Repeat the entire procedure for spring 3, and record the results in the second data table. Make sure the softness of the spring is set as specified earlier. 7) If you have not already done so, fill in the following tables with the values you found in the simulation. Spring 1: Mass Units: kilograms Weight Units: newtons Spring Force Units: newtons Distance Stretched Units: cm .05 .49 2.45 5 .1 .98 9.8 10 .25 2.45 61.25 25 Spring 3: Mass Units: kilograms Weight Units: newtons Spring Force Units: newtons Distance Stretched Units: cm .05 .49 4.9 10 .1 .98 19.6 20 .25 2.45 115.15 47
