Demonstration: Buildings in earthquake zones need to be designed with modes of vibration and resonance in mind.
Class practical: The experiment involves isolating and controlling one variable at a time, taking measurements carefully and...
Class practical: This develops the idea of frequency, and explores accuracy of measurement.
Class practical: A circus of experiments involving repetitive events, to introduce the concept of oscillation.
Students investigate factors affecting the oscillation time for a simple pendulum.
Class practical: This circus of qualitative experiments provides an introductory look at simple harmonic motion.
Demonstration and Class practical: To demonstrate S.H.M. of a mass on a spring and gather accurate data using a datalogger.
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 practica: Students make a timer using a simple pendulum.
