written by Andrew Duffy
This item is a Java simulation relating to work done by a spring.  As the user stretches and compresses a spring, the magnitude and direction of the spring force is simultaneously plotted on a Force vs. Position graph.  

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 of simulations designed by this author to support first semester physics curriculum.
