2. Because if it’s not, it won’t have enough potential energy to swing back in the opposite
direction.3. Given angles and start positions by the lab instead of us choosing these, would lead to more accurate results being some angles and position starts would lead to less error. For example choosing an angle of 67.7 degrees would produce a lot more error than an easy angle like 45 degrees.4. As discussed previously they were very similar. Any discrepancy could be due to minor miscalculation in oscillation counting, ect.5.Conclusion:After testing different types of harmonic motion, and proving the relationships between weight, displacement, spring constant, and gravity I know understand how relative a simple oscillating harmonic motion can be to different types of physics circumstances and ideologies such as Hooke’s Law and Newton’s first law of motion.
