Explore some factors that affect the period of a spring.

Press the play button. Watch the graph to see how the height of the mass changes as it moves up and down. Use the graph to determine the period of the mass-spring system. Adjust the scale by dragging the numbers on the axes. Change each variable – gravity, spring constant, starting distance and mass – and observe how each one affects the period. Can you explain why? Is this different from the relationships for a pendulum? Try the damping slider. Does damping change the period?

 

Explore the motion of a pendulum on a spring.

Press the play button. Watch the graphs to see the motion of the spring pendulum. Can you distinguish the pattern of spring motion (up and down) from the pattern of pendulum motion (back and forth)? How are the two related? Is there a regular pattern to the motion? Compare the periods of the two graphs. How many different patterns can you produce by changing the variables – gravity, rod length, mass and spring constant? Under what conditions does the energy switch between back and forth and up and down? Does the initial starting angle affect the patterns when all the other variables are unchanged?
