Force and Extension Experiment

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Force and Extension Experiment Aim: The aim of this experiment is to investigate the relationship between the force applied to a spring and how much the spring extends. Results - Table Results - Graphs Evaluation There are a few things that could have varied during the course of the experiment. ...read more.

Middle

My results were limited by the degree of accuracy, as I was measuring with a meter stick. Not looking at the meter stick at eye level when measuring could also have affected the results I received. ...read more.

Conclusion

The points I plotted on the graphs form, more or less, a straight line, which indicates direct proportionality between load and extension. Therefore, the results agree with Hooke's Law, as the law states that the extension of a spring is directly proportional to the stretching force. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
