The Effect of Mass On a Spring

Aim:

I am doing this experiment to find out what effect mass has on a

spring. In order to find out how the spring extends we will need to

add various amounts of weights to the spring.

Apparatus:

Å¸ Stand

Å¸ Clamp

Å¸ Spring

Å¸ Weights (Newton's)

Å¸ Metre Ruler

Å¸ Goggles

Diagram:

Method:

Once I have all my apparatus set up like above, I will measure the

spring on its own to find its original length. Once I have written

down the measurement in mm's, I will add 1 Newton onto the bottom of

the spring. I will measure to see how long the spring has extended in

mm's. I am measuring the extension of the spring's length in mm's

because the results will be a lot more accurate. I will keep doing

this and measuring the spring to see how long it has extended from the

previous length and the original spring length. I will be doing this

test 4 times going up to 8 Newton's each time. I want to do the test 4

times because I would like to see if there is any pattern in the

extension of the spring.

Prediction:

I predict that the spring will extend each time we add a various

amounts of weights on to the bottom because it will be getting heavier

and heavier causing it to stretch.

Fair Test:

I will be keeping this experiment a fair test by using the same spring

each time I do an experiment and going up to 8 Newton's each time I do

the experiment.

Safety:

To keep this experiment a fair one, I will be wearing goggles because

the spring may flick up and it could catch you in the eye. I will also

be standing up whilst doing the test as the stand we are using may

fall on you. To prevent the stand from falling you could clamp the

## Conductivity of Graphite Paper

902 Words | 4 PagesThe factor I have chosen is the change of length of the graphite paper. To ensure that my test is accurate I will have to make it a 'fair' test. For example I will use the same piece of graphite paper throughout the experiment, as some of the graphite paper may be different in thickness and width. I will also use the same ammeter, power supply and converted bull dog clips because they may be slightly different and if they are changed the results will vary compared to other results obtained by different apparatus. For the experiment I plan to use suitable equipment for the particular variable.

## Harmonic Motion: The Spring

583 Words | 3 PagesHarmonic Motion: The Spring Objective: The purpose of this experiment to study the simple harmonic motion of an object placed on the spring. Harmonic motion involves the principle of oscillation where the spring force is proportional to the spring?s elongation. This means that the further the spring was stretched, there was increase in the force in order to keep the spring extended. The experiment is divided into two parts. In the first part, I measured static equilibrium and in the second part, I measured the period of oscillation known as dynamic oscillation.

## Average Spring Constant and Uncertainty of the Batch

1397 Words | 6 PagesAverage Spring Constant and Uncertainty of the Batch Outline plan ============ I have been given 3 springs to which I will add different weight. Using the value of extension (Î”x) I will calculate the spring constant. Hooke's Law says that the stretch of a spring from its rest position is linearly proportional to the applied force (stress is proportional to strain). Symbolically, F = kÎ”x Where F stands for the applied force, x is the amount of stretch (found by new length minus original length), and k is a constant that depends on the "stiffness" of the spring, called the spring constant. [IMAGE] Trial plan ========== Set up equipment as above.

## Fitness Training Programme

1372 Words | 6 PagesI will carry out a different exercise at each station for 30 seconds. Circuit training will improve my muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, aerobic fitness, muscular strength, and my speed and agility. It is important that each station works a different muscle group so that one group does not get over worked and cause damage. Circuit training is a training method which I feel will prove very good on improving my endurance and stamina. In the fitness tests I expect there will be a lot of difference when it comes to things like strength testing because of the gender related hormones produced by different sexes.

## The Effect of Exercise on Pulse Rate

514 Words | 3 PagesI will first exercise for 15 seconds then measure my pulse rate for 15 seconds then rest for 2 minutes then repeat the process. I will do this 3 times then increase the amount of time I exercise for to 30 seconds and do the same but exercise for 30 seconds. I will increase the amount of time I exercise for by 15 starting from 30 then, 45,60,75 and then 90 seconds. I will make sure results are reliable by repeating them if they are slightly unreliable. I predict that as the amount of time I exercise for increases so will my pulse rate.

## Investigating Energy Stored in a Spring

1722 Words | 7 PagesInvestigating Energy Stored in a Spring What is the spring constant? ============================ Planning Aim - to gain an average compression rate of the spring in the trolley in order to find the spring constant. Apparatus Clamp stand 2 clamps 2 bosses, 24 0.98N weights 2 weight holders 3 labels Pencil Sprit level Trolley Ruler (measures to nearest 5 x 10-4m) Diagram Plan - I am going to investigate the spring constant of the spring in the trolley to enable me to calculate the energy stored in the spring in the major investigation. To calculate the spring constant, I need to plot my results onto a graph and draw a line of best fit. The spring constant is equal to the gradient of this straight line.

## The Effect of Exercise on Heart Rate

948 Words | 4 PagesThen finally I am going to do hard running for exactly one minute, and after that minute, I will measure and record my heart rate 3 times, also for one minute. The apparatus that I will use to carry out my experiment consists of: a stopwatch, a pen, a pencil, a ruler and paper. To get reliable and detailed results, when exercising and measuring the pulse of my heart rate for one minute, I will use a stopwatch/clock, by doing so, it increase the accuracy of the test. Furthermore, when I am regaining my resting heart rate for five

## Resistance of a Wire

2648 Words | 11 PagesI think these are: Â¶ Length of wire Â¶ Diameter of wire Â¶ Material/type of wire Â¶ Temperature I am going to try and find out how the diameter of the wire affects the resistance of the wire. I will do some tests find out how the diameter affects the resistance. I think that if I increase the diameter the resistance will decrease. Method ====== 1. First I will set up a circuit with a power pack, voltmeter, ammeter and a space for a 1metre wire.

## Measuring the Viscosity of a Liquid

2322 Words | 10 PagesMeasuring the Viscosity of a Liquid Aim The aim of this experiment is to find out how fluid Bath Oils really are by measuring its viscosity. Plan The first thing that I'll do is to measure the spheres volume by first measuring its radius. I will then, by calculating the spheres mass, be able to calculate the density of the sphere. This will be used later when calculating the viscosity of the bath oil. I will then find the density of the bath oil, also used during calculations later on.
