5 7. A group of students conducted an experiment to determine the spring constant of an elastic spring. In the experiment they were using the mass-spring oscillating system shown above. A disk of mass m is attached to a horizontal spring. The disk has a small hole that is used to place it on a frictionless horizontal rod. When the disk is displaced from its equilibrium point and released it undergoes SHM. The students were able to vary the mass by exchanging the disks with different masses and in each trial they measured the time for ten complete oscillations. The data is shown below. M (kg) T 10 (s) T (s) T 2 (s 2 ) a. For each trial, calculate the period and the square of the period. Use a reasonable number of significant figures. Enter these results in the table above. b. On the axes below, plot the square of the period versus mass using an appropriate x and y scale. Draw the best fit line for this data. c. A disk with an unknown mass is set to SHM. The time for ten oscillations is 7 s. From the graph, find the mass of the disk. Write your answer with a reasonable number of significant figures. d. From the graph, find the spring constant. e. Is it possible to use this device to measure mass aboard satellite orbiting Earth?

6 8. An experiment to measure the acceleration due to gravity g was conducted in a physics lab. Students were using a simple pendulum, meter stick, and stopwatch. The pendulum consisted of a ball of mass m at the end of a string of length L. During the experiment, the students were changing the length of the string and recording the time for ten complete oscillations. The data is shown below. L (m) t 10 (s) T (s) T 2 (s 2 ) a. Calculate the period and the square of the period for each trial and enter these results in the table above. Use a reasonable number of significant figures. b.

Assuming that the pendulum undergoes SHM according to your best-fit line, determine the value of the acceleration due to gravity. Explain your answer. d. If the experiment was performed in the accelerating upward elevator, how would it change the answer to part (c)? Explain.

8 10. A baseball bat of mass M and length L is pivoted at point P. The center of mass of the bat is located at a distance d from the pivot.
