In the simple harmonic motion lab, my partner and I first tested or investigated into the
motion as it was in static equilibrium. We hanged the weight holder from the spring, and
suspended the spring, narrow end up and got a Xi (bottom to t

9. Questions
If you hooked two springs like yours together end-to-end and then suspended a 200 g
mass from the end, what would the overall elongation be? Therefore, what would be the effective
spring constant of the two springs considered as one?
