Simple Harmonic Motion and Hookes Law
By: Victoria Kozar, Emily Lucibella, Alex Swett, Alexi Mangilli
Purpose:
The purpose of this experiment was to explore and observe the properties of simple harmonic
motion and analyzing it with Hookes Law.
Procedure:
1. A child in a boat that is at rest throws a 6.4 kg package horizontally with a speed of 10 m/s as in the figure below. Calculate
the velocity of the boat immediately after the throw. The childs mass is 26 kg and the mass of the boat is 45 kg.
