written by Andrew Duffy
This interactive simulation models the motion of a block attached to an ideal spring that oscillates horizontally. Students can set the mass of the block, the initial position, spring constant, and damping. Motion graphs plot the block's position, speed, and acceleration as a function of time, and energy bar graphs are also displayed.

This applet was created with EJS, Easy Java Simulations, a modeling tool that allows users without formal programming experience to generate computer models and simulations.
