Experiment 5
Hookes Law and Simple Harmonic Motion
Object:
Hookes Law describes the motion of a perfectly elastic spring, and is exactly valid under
this condition of the spring being perfectly elastic. In this experiment we are to observe
the

Experiment #7
Rotation and Moment of Inertia
Object:
To examine rotational motion and the moment of inertia experimentally using graphical
analysis to test the theoretical relationship between the torque applied to a wheel, the
wheels accelera

Experiment #6
The Simple Pendulum
Object:
To observe the simple harmonic motion of a pendulum using a method of dimensional
analysis, finding a relationship between the pendulums period T and the length of the
string. We will then test this re
