Spring Force and SHM (simple harmonic motion)

Logo for Spring Force and SHM (simple harmonic motion)
This applet shows a hanging mass on a spring. Users may add or remove mass from the spring to change the equilibrium point, or may observe the oscillatory motion on a graph showing velocity vs. position.

This applet is the same one that we looked at in class, but I think is very
useful. The relationship between the motion of an object attached to the spring
and circular motion is demonstrated. It is still funny how the applet moves so
fast. The relationship of the force and velocity vectors is shown on the applet.
The most interesting aspect of this applet is that one circular orbit is equal
to one oscillation.

Nicely done demonstration that displays clearly the concepts involved in simple harmonic motion. Similar demos are common. Aimed at introductory physics students.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to use applets. Worked fine.
