For the beginning student, this is a very simple simulation of a weighted vertical spring in simple harmonic motion. Users can adjust spring constant, mass, and amplitude with sliders or by entering exact values. Though the motion of a bungee jump is more complicated, this applet could serve as a concept-builder before introducing the bungee jumping PBL activity.
