Simple Harmonic Motion


Simple Harmonic Motion

Logo for Simple Harmonic Motion
This simulation lets users alter a variety of variables for simple harmonic motion for two systems: a spring with a hanging mass (the spring constant, and the value of the mass), and a string with a mass hanging on it (the length of the string, and the value of the mass). For both systems, the acceleration due to gravity may also be altered.
