B4-02: HOOKE'S LAW - COMPRESSING A SPRING

• ID Code: B4-02
• Purpose: Demonstrate Hooke's law for a spring under compression.
• Description:

This tabletop demonstrations illustrates Hooke's Law in compression, for comparison to the typical hanging-spring examples. Add weights to observe that the compression of the spring is approximately proportional to the amount of weight added.
