Product Description
Objective: Students are given a set of 5 unique rubber bands and will determine the 'k" elastic constant of each. Students will also determine if the rubber band obeys Hooke's Law. This lab is appropriate for a secondary level basic or AP physics class.

Materials Needed:
- Set of unique rubber bands for each lab group (I gave each group 5 and obtained them from an "assortment" bag)
-Lab pole or ring stand and clamp (i.e. a horizontal bar to hang rubber band vertically from)
-Mass hanger and masses or hooked masses ranging from 0.1kg to 0.5kg
-Meter stick or ruler
-Graph paper / Excel / Other graphing program
