center of mass

Two-body system

Purpose May be used to demonstrate the principle of center of mass and circular motion Parts The two-body system is found fully-assembled on shelf C3. Setup No setup required. simply twirl the system as in the photo below to illustrate concepts of center of mass and circular motion. Continue reading »

Mass on spring (incomplete)

Purpose: Investigate the dependence of the period of the system on the mass, spring constant and the amplitude. Parts: Two masses Two springs Holder Setup: Setup contains two hanging masses from springs. The spring constant/mass(k/m) ratio for  spring+mass systems are same. So that the frequency of oscillations or the time… Continue reading »
