of the spring scale to the thread. Pull the scale so that the scale reads a constant force F during your entire pull. Make sure to keep the thread and scale horizontal while you are pulling. Lower the long vertical rod on which the rotary apparatus is mounted to a level that makes it easier to read the spring scale and achieve a horizontal pull.
Lab Report 12: Simple Harmonic Motion, Mass on a Spring. 04/20/12. James Allison. section 20362. Group 5. James Allison, Clint Rowe, & William Cochran. Objective: For our final lab of associated with physics I, we will dissect the motions of a mass on a spring. Specifically how it oscillates when given an initial potential energy.
