Simple Harmonic Motion
Abstract: The use of springs and weights to demonstrate simple harmonic motions of a spring
mass system.
Introduction: This experiment will incorporate the use of a spring mass system to observe the
motion an

Abstract:
We will be using the ideal gas law to verify Boyles Law as well and calculating the number of
moles in our gas sample.
Introduction:
We know from Boyles law that at a fixed temperature, the pressure of a fixed amount of an idea

Lab#3
Abstract:
In this lab we will be using two specific components, pulley and electric vibrating reed, to
determine the resonant wavelength. We will do this by adding weight to one end of the string
and observe the standing wave to

Specific gravity and Archimedes Principle
Abstract:
By using different solids along with Archimedes Principle we gain a concept on exactly
how we can determine the gravity of each object. We will be using multiple test examples, such

Abstract:
Determining the coefficient of linear expansion of three different metals.
Introduction:
Most materials adjust to temperature, as in expand when increase and contract if decrease in
temperature. To find the coefficient of linear
