Introduction/ Abstract:
Simple harmonic motion is the study of oscillation. An object undergoes oscillation when it experiences a restoring force which restores this object to equilibrium positon. The Simple harmonic oscillation occurs when the net force on an object along the direction of motion is proportional to the object’s displacement and in the opposite direction by this equation F = -kx. In addition, an object whose position-time graph makes a sine or cosine function is in simple harmonic motion. This type of relation is called Hooke’s law. The purpose of this experiment is to prove Hooke’s law and study Simple harmonic motion and to show that this equation T = 2 is valid during Simple harmonic motion.
Theory:
The relevant theoretical concepts and equations used in this experiment are:
T = 2
| E1 − E2 |
E1 + E2
2
K=
Percent difference =
Experimental Procedure:
The Computer and sensor calibration along with equipment such as DIN plug, force sensor, rod, clamp, spring, sensor’s hook, and hanger were all set up already in the laboratory before we started doing the experiment.
Hooke’s law
a) We used a meter stick to measure the position of the
