PhET Teacher Activities: Hooke's Law

This two-hour activity for high school physics was created to accompany the PhET simulation <i>Masses & Springs</i>. In the first lesson, students will use the simulation to explore how displacement of a spring is mathematically related to the load applied to it. In the next day's exploration, learners analyze the energy of a mass oscillating on a spring by observing distribution and transfer of kinetic, elastic potential, and...
