This applet demonstrates Simple Harmonic Motion.  The motion of a mass on a vertical spring is shown with the spring moving horizontally to create a position vs. time graph. The y-coordinate of the ball is position and the X value is time. The user can adjust the spring constant (k) and observe the resultant change in motion. Other forces, such as gravity, drag, and friction have been removed.

This is part of a larger collection of applets by Acadia University.
