Spring Force and SHM

Let us cosider the force exerted on a mass by a spring attached to it.

This force take the form F = - k X

Where X measures the displacement of the mass from an equilibrium
position;

k is a constant characteristic of the particular spring known as spring constant.

This force law is known as Hooke's law.

This Java applet let you familar with this kind of relation and simple harmonic motionÂˇC

How to play:

There is a spring on the table, a string is connected to the spring
over a light frictionless pulley.

You can attach mass/blocks to the spring :

1. Move the mouse button with the blocks

2. The color of those blocks above the mouse pointer will turn black.

3. Click the mouse button to attach those black blocks to the spring.

4. The mass of those attached blocks will be shown near another spring (to
the right).

The spring will relax to its equilibrium position.

You can detach mass/blocks from the spring

1. Move the mouse button within the region of the attached blocks.

2. The color of those blocks below the mouse pointer will turn black.

3. Click the left mouse button to dettach those black blocks to the spring.

4. If you click the right mouse button and drag it up/down,

5. the force exerted on the spring will not balance the weight of the mass.

It will starts to oscillate in simple harmonic oscillation (SHM)

Press the mouse button to suspend the animation, click it again to resume.

Press Stop button to reset the spring back to equilibrium position.

Press Reset button to reset parameters to default values.

 X-axis Y-axis blue dots displacement Force red dots displacement Velocity

ExercisesÂˇG
1. Find out the spring-constant?

2. Green dot is the equilibrium position. How to determine the smpiltude of
the oscillation?

3. Measure the peroid of the oscillation. What is the relation between mass
and the period?

4. What else did you find out?

If a spring with a mass attached to it is slightly stretched or compressed
and then let loose,

Many elastic systems (building, flagpoles, airplane wings, etc) behave
in a very similar fashion.

This is a EJS version of the above applet!

Embed a running copy of this simulation

Embed a running copy link(show simulation in a popuped window)

• 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!

Error in XML source code prof
EJS console appear message: found  : boolean
required: int
public int _method_for_shape2_enabledPosition () {  return _isPaused(); }
^
1 error
Compilation produced an error!
Thanks

I do understand why you have such error. I can not re-produce the same error.
It is working fine with my EJS version 4.2

It should be
public boolean _method_for_shape2_enabledPosition () {  return _isPaused(); }
public int _method_for_shape2_enabledPosition () {  return _isPaused(); }

Please try to quit your EJS. re-run it and comiple the same file again.

May prof problem because I'm use another version is EJS_4.3.0
So i will test by version 4.2.7 but i have ask :
I can setup two versions from EJS in my PC and work without probelms ?
