Question

Materials

·     Clicking Pen

·     Meter Stick

·     Stopwatch

·     Phone camera (slow motion)

·     Any thing else that would help you make the necessary measurements

1)    Design an experiment which you can conduct at home to determine the spring constant of the spring in a clicking pen. Describe what you will do. You do not need to include equations here.

2)    Come up with a mathematical procedure which you can use to determine the spring constant of the spring. Rearrange the equation to get the spring constant, k, on its own.

3)    Design a second independent method that would allow you to determine the spring constant of the spring. This can be as simple as you would like it to be.
