Periodic Motion: Mass And Spring
In this lab, students will use a motion sensor to determine the physical properties that affect the period of oscillation of a hanging mass and spring system. Then, students will use their data to support a mathematical model relating period, mass, and spring constant.Preview Download

The Wireless Motion Sensor uses ultrasound to measure the position, velocity, and acceleration of objects.
The Mass and Hanger Set includes 4 hangers and 27 weights that range from 0.5 g to 100 g.
Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
