Lab: Finding the Spring Constant (k)I.Question/PurposeWhat is **Hooke's** Law, and what does it have to do with k?Objectives: Determine the spring constant of a sprin ... ts a stronger spring, and a lower value represents a weaker spring. That is true because F and x in **Hooke's** Law (F=kx) have a direct relationship. So, I can state that k will be a numerical value and ... ts a stronger spring, and a lower value represents a weaker spring.

#### Simple Pendulum

m, g, and L are positive constants, we note that formula (1) has the same form as the equation for **Hooke's** Law. Recall that **Hooke's** **law** is of the form (F = -k x). Although we won't prove it, it can b ... is of the form (F = -k x). Although we won't prove it, it can be shown that an object is subject to **Hooke's** **law**, or any other force that can be expressed in a form similar to **Hooke's** **law**, it will exec ...
