Students use a simulation of a spring to explore the relationship between displacement and restoring force.
Students use a simulated spring to explore Hooke's Law. They first observe how displacement and restoring force change as the spring is stretched.
Next, they use the Geometry Trace tool to trace the path of point S, whose coordinates represent the displacement and restoring force for each position of the spring.
Finally, students plot the best-fit equation for the data points and use the equation to determine the spring constant for the spring.
