This is a physics lab report on finding the spring constant (k). It includes many tables and charts of data.

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.

Streching A Copper Wire

: To investigate the elongation of steel and copper springs Hypothesis: I believe both springs obey Hooke's Law, and they will both show plastic behavior. But not at the same force applied, because bo ... oth of them have different properties this explains why they don't extend at the same force applied.Hooke's Law is based on the elastic behavior of certain materials.

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 ...
