Two springs with spring constant k1,k2 are at their original length, with attached mass m1,m2.
The restored force for spring $\vec{F}=-k*\Delta \vec{x}$
There is a smaller spring (spring constant k<Use your mose to drag one of the mass (e.g. right one). You will find it starts to oscillate.
However, the amplitude will become smaller and the left one will start to oscillator,too.
You will find energy transfer from right to left, then later from left to right - throught coupled spring.

• Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
• Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
• Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!
