Hooke's Law and the Harmonic Oscillator
written by Adrian Fernandez-Gavela, Cristina Gonzalez-Gago, and M. A. Cerdeira
When a mass hanging from a spring is separated a small distance from the equilibrium position, it oscillates under the action of a restoring force proportional to the distance to the equilibrium point. It can be verified that, in this situation, the mass describes a simple harmonic motion.  To study the restoring forces and the resulting motion we used a vertically hanging spring with a mass holder at the bottom. The oscillation motion of the different hanging masses is recorded, and the videos are analyzed with Tracker to obtain the respective trajectories.
