Product Description
OVERVIEW

The Hooke’s Law Lab is a software simulation where students can study the relationship between the mass on and stretch of a spring.

Students measure the mass placed on and the stretch of a spring. From this data they develop the equation called Hooke's Law and the spring constant k. The spring constant used in the lab is randomly generated. The Hooke’s Law Lab can be run from the computer without giving out a lab handout. Students can print out the data table after typing in the data on the computer. They can also experiment on how a spring bouncing up

There are a number of tutorial screens discussing elastic versus plastic materials, a review of finding the slope, how to derive and equation from a graph, the meaning of the spring constant, what a restoring force is, and a brief history of Hooke. Following are a few sample screens.

A sample answer key for the lab is provided.

Finally, the software includes a 10 question quiz for review.
