Hooke's Law, Vibrations, Mechanical Waves, and Sound
Dangle a spring to experiment with vibration and discover if period is dependent on amplitude. Strum a guitar and adjust the strings to compare displacement and sound. Use a Slinky® and guitar strings on a ring stand to uncover the mystery of resonance.

Investigation of Hooke's Law Lab
Students determine the spring constant by conducting an investigation. In this physics lesson plan, students collect data and create a graph of force vs. displacement. They compare the results of two different methods to find spring constant.

Creating Linear Models for Data 3
Scholars solve 24 various types of problems that include defining Hooke's Law, conducting an experiment, and exploring rate of change. They create a scatter plot to show the data for the number and the distance from the table to the top. Then, they apply the average distance computed to determine the rate of change for the linear model given.

Can You Handle the Stress
Students determine the Young's modulus for four different materials in two different ways and compare the stiffness of the materials based upon this value. A comparison is made between the stiffness or elastic modulus to figure out equations.

Spring Scale Engineering
After examining how a spring scale works, teams work together to design their own general measurement device. Reading material provides background information, but there is no part of the procedure in which learners handle an actual spring scale.
