A metre rule One stopwatch One stand, clamp and boss One spring Two pieces of wood A beam balance or electronic balance (to be shared) One mass labeled M Proceed as follows: a) Hang the spring vertically by clamping one end as shown in figure 1. (the small pieces of wood to clamp the spring) b) Measure the length, Lo, of the unloaded spring, and record below. Lo=_________________________________mm ( ½ mk) c) Hang the mass M given from the lower end of the spring. Measure the length,L 1 of the loaded spring. L 1 =_________________________________mm ( ½ mk) d) Find the value of L 1 -L o in centimeters. L= L 1 - L o cm 1mrk e) Using the balance given find the mass of the object M. Mass of M=___________g (1mk) f) Hang the mass M from the lower end of the spring. Displace it by a small vertical distance and release so that the spring makes vertical oscillations. Measure and record, time for the number of oscillations given in the table below Oscillations, N 5 7 10 13 15 18 20 Time in seconds, t (s) ( N+10t ) (s) 10 ( N+10t ) 2 (s 2 ) 10 (7mks) Complete the table above g) On the grid provided plot a graph of ( N+10t ) 2 (y-axis) against N.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
