Stretch and compress springs to explore the relationships between force, spring constant, displacement, and potential energy! Investigate what happens when two springs are connected in series and parallel.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Explain the relationships between applied force, spring force, spring constant, displacement, and potential energy.
  • Describe how connecting two springs in series or parallel affects the effective spring constant and the spring forces.
  • Predict how the potential energy stored in the spring changes as the spring constant and displacement change.
