Website Detail Page

written by Andrew Duffy
This item is a Java simulation relating to work done by a spring.  As a spring is stretched to its elastic limit, the movement is recorded on Force vs. Position and Work vs. Position graphs.  Users may view the graphs in stepped motion to see how the position of the spring is related to the amount of work done.  

This item is part of a collection of similar simulation-based activities.  See Related Materials on this page for a link to the full index developed for first semester introductory physics students.
