Hooke’s Law – 1R10.00

Stretching a Spring – 1R10.10


  • A 50 gram mass hanger hangs on a spring
  • Begin with 50 grams on the hanger. This brings the spring into its linear range.
  • Mark the position of the bottom of the hanger on a meter stick positioned next to it with a clamp.
  • Add 100 gram masses to the hanger marking the positions after each addition.
  • Compare the end positions of masses that are multiples, such as double or triple.
