G1-37: MASS ON SPRING WITH ULTRASONIC RANGER

Additional Info

  • ID Code: G1-37
  • Purpose: Plot graphs of position, velocity and acceleration for a mass oscillating on a spring.
  • Description: The ultrasonic range finder is used to plot graphs of position, velocity and acceleration for a mass oscillating vertically on a spring. Hanging masses with greater or lesser air resistance damping are available.
    Dr. Dan Russel of Penn State has developed some simulations of oscillating masses on springs that generate similar position graphs; compare the undamped and damped versions on his site.
  • Availability: Available
  • Loc codes: FS1, C2
