Physics: Vernier - Simple Harmonic Motion
by Vernier Software & Technology - Data Collection with Probes Lesson

Objectives

  • Measure the position and velocity as a function of time for an oscillating mass and spring system.
  • Compare the observed motion of a mass and spring system to a mathematical model of simple harmonic motion.
  • Determine the amplitude, period, and phase constant of the observed simple harmonic motion.
