Springs and Pulleys

  • To verify Hooke’s Law and find the spring constant using Hooke’s Law

  • Connect the springs in series and parallel

  • Study the simple harmonic motion of a mass attached to the end of a spring

  • Learn the relationship between period and frequency

  • Determine the spring constant by using the period of oscillation for a mass on the end of a spring. 



Hooke’s law, also known as the law of elasticity, explains the relationship between the force and the elasticity. When a force is applied to a material such as springs, the material has a displacement and Hooke’s law is used to calculate the displacement. With this experiment you will be experiencing Hooke’s law with virtual reality and have your data to see your improvement.
