Oscillation of a Cart and Springs
The period of oscillation of the cart and spring system is measured using the Smart Cart Position Sensor. The effect on the period is investigated when changing the spring constant, amplitude of the oscillation, and the mass of the cart.
The Smart Cart’s force sensor is used in a separate part of the experiment to directly measure the spring constant.PreviewDownload
