Hooke's Law

Lab Summary

Use a force sensor and two springs to determine both Hooke's law and the spring constant of each spring.

Theory

Students use two different springs to determine both Hooke's Law and the spring constant of each spring.

Sensors / Equipment Used:

PASPORT Force Sensor

(PS-2104)

Designed to measure both pulling and pushing forces. Uses range from collisions to tug-of-war.

Demonstration Spring Set

(ME-9866)

Four large springs ideal for Hooke's Law or Conservation of Energy demonstrations.

Materials Used:

Meter Stick

The Associated Bundle:

Advanced Physics Standard Sensor Bundle

(PS-2932B)

This bundle contains the probeware needed to perform all 37 lab activities in the Advanced Physics lab manual.

Interface Required

This experiment may require software and an interface for data collection.
