Class practical: This circus of qualitative experiments provides an introductory look at simple harmonic motion.
Demonstration: To show that simple harmonic motion (S.H.M.) is sinusoidal.
Demonstration and Class practical: To demonstrate S.H.M. of a mass on a spring and gather accurate data using a datalogger.
Class practical A circus with many different examples of simple harmonic motion. <img src="Station A""/>
Demonstration: A mass suspended on a spring will oscillate after being displaced. The period of oscillation is affected by the...
Demonstration: A demonstration experiment that makes a time trace of the oscillation and illustrates damping.
Class practical: To show the similarities between S.H.M. and other oscillating systems.
Demonstration: This experiment leads towards a quantitative approach to simple harmonic motion. It shows that S.H.M., treated...
Class practical: To show that the wave train on a rope has a sinusoidal shape.
Class practical: This experiment could extend (or replace) the traditional pendulum or mass-on-a-spring experiments...
Demonstration: Measuring the velocity of a pendulum at different points along its swing to introduce discussions of...
Demonstration: It is worth the effort of setting up this demonstration to project the image of the oscillating tuning fork.
