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 positiontime 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.

a) We used a meter stick to measure the position of the…

Analyzing The Conservation Of Mechanical Energy Of A Harmonic Oscillating Spring System
1453 Words  6 Pagesof mechanical energy of a harmonic oscillating springsystem. In addition, this observation involved analyzing to what affect some of the mechanical energy was lost or dissipated into other forms of energy, despite the experiment 's attempt to minimize the dissipation of the energy as much as possible. The first part of the experiment involved calculating the spring force constant (k) of the harmonic oscillator. This was achieved by utilizing Hooke 's Law for a harmonic oscillator: F=kx The…

Newton developed the principles of modern physics. He created the three laws of motion popular in the world of science and our daily lives ("Issac Newton Biography"). Newton’s first law states that an object at rest…

Newton 's Laws Of Motion
936 Words  4 PagesPhysical Science Level 1 18 October 2015 Newton’s Laws of Motion Newton 's three laws of motion play a huge role in our everyday life; from driving down the road and catching a baseball. Newton’s laws help us fully understand gravity, motion, and force in three easytounderstand laws. Newton’s first law of motion describes that an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted on by an outside force. Newton’s first law can also be called the law of inertia. This is true because inertia is an…

It 's The Law?
1120 Words  5 PagesIt’s the Law All Americans have certain laws that we all have to follow. However, many Americans do not even know how or why we follow them. Nor do we know how to oppose them properly. We look at these laws as if they were etched onto stone by Moses himself. However, just like all aspects of our government, there is an actual process, which must be followed. A proposed law must go through several different branches of our government where it goes through many different points at which the law can be…

At the time we are born we fall prey to our gender, with little choice in the matter, we are expected to fulfill a role to that gender, to develop into an individual with characteristics focused around that particular gender (Stern & Karraker, 1989). Conclusions are drawn to what colors we will be dressed in "beginning with…

Snell 's Law : The Law Of Refraction
1195 Words  5 PagesPatel Biology – Period 4 27 October 2014 Snell’s Law – The Law of Refraction Snell’s law is a formula used to express the relationship involving the angles of incidence and refraction, when referring to a wave impinging through a boundary between two different isotropic media. The law follows from the boundary condition that a wave is continuous across a boundary, which requires that the phase of the wave be constant on any given plane. The law of refraction was originally and accurately described…

1308 Words  6 PagesDescription In other lessons, we learned about different gas laws: Boyle’s Law, Charles’ Law and GayLussac’s Law. What happens if we combine all these laws together? We come up with a whole new gas law: The Combined Gas Law. This will be our lesson’s focus. !!!Combined Gas Law: A Combination of Three Laws There are three variables that we are looking at when it comes to the combined gas law, and these are pressure, temperature and volume. The __combined gas law__ makes use of the relationships…

Summary Of Prokofiev 's Harmonic And Key Relations
1815 Words  8 PagesProkofiev’s Harmonic Idiosyncrasies and Key Relations in the Classical Symphony Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony is, oddly enough, one of his few pieces to garner much theoretical and musicological interest. However, much of it seems to be misguided at best and more likely missing the point altogether. This is not to say that everyone is wrong, to the contrary, most folks are not, the problem is that the theorist and musicologist cannot seem to get on the same page. The enduring question is not…

Flaubert 's A Simple Heart
1473 Words  6 Pagesauthenticity of everyday life, by avoiding the idealism commonly found in romantic literature. Gustave Flaubert’s “A simple heart” is not a story which contains any substantial climatic event. Instead it entails the entire life of Félicité in only five sections and arguably embodies a realistic biography, although fiction. There is flatness in the style of writing, but although it is simple, Flaubert’s short story reflects the complex tribulations of real life with the unfortunate events Félicité encounters…

Simple Harmonic Motion Essay
630 Words  3 PagesOBJECT: The objective of this lab is to obtain the spring constant by using the simple harmonic motion of the springmass system. Once the spring constant is obtained it is to be compared to the spring constant obtained by Hooke’s Law. PROCEDURE: 1) Using a meter stick measure the distance from the attached point of the spring to the end of the spring, at this time there is to be no mass on the spring. Once this measurement is obtained the elongations can be calculated by subtracting…
