Objective

To verify the accuracy of Hooke’s Law.

Apparatus

 Helical steel with supporting stand and scale set of slotted weights with hanger,
laboratory balance.

Procedure

 Mass mhanger of the hanger the mass mspring of your spring was measured and
recorded

 The scale at the pointer on the hanger was adjusted near the upper end of the scale
when the hanger is unloaded. The position was recorded as x0 and prepare a table
on data sheet.

 Hanger by m= 50ngrams was loaded. The scale reading of extension, x was


recorded. The increasing of the load by sultable increments was keeped to obtain
8 data points before the lower end of the scale is reached, all data was recorded.

 The process by unloading the same load as in (3). Again, S for each load was
recorded.

Results / Data

Calculations

Give all the answers in SI unit.

1. Plot a graph of the force causing the extension against the extension, x. What is
the gradient of the graph?

Force (N) Extension , x (m)


691.605 2.5
1182.105 4.5
1672.105 6.3
2163.105 8.0
2653.605 10.0
3144.105 11.6
3634.605 13.5
4125.105 15.7

Gradient of the graph = 269.68


2. How much work done in stretching the spring through 0.05 m? Find this from graph.

Work done = Area under the graph

= ½ x 0.05 x 1672.105

= 41.80263 J

3. How much energy stored in the spring when it is extended to 0.05 m?

Energy stored , u = ½ kx2

= ½ x 0.05 x 1672.105

= 41.802635 J

4. Describe any errors that may have occurred during this experiment?

 Parallax error , spring

5. What can you describe from your result about the relationship between the
extension of a spring and the force causing extension?

 Force directly proportional to the extension of a spring which means the


larger the force applied , the bigger the spring will extend.
