torsional oscillations of a spring-mass system
- In helical springs, the spring force is generated by the elastic deformation of a metal band wound in an Archimedean spiral.
- If a mass is attached to the spring, we refer to it as a spring–mass system.
- The resistance that the spring presents opposite of the elastic deformation is known as spring stiffness.
- It is a characteristic variable of the spring.
- The TM 164unit comprises a helical spring connected to a rotating lever.
- Masses can be attached to the lever at various distances.
- This creates a spring-mass system, which can be used to study the effects of the spring stiffness, mass and mass distribution on the oscillation frequency.
- The deflection angle can be read on an angle scale.
- The experimental unit is designed to be fixed to a wall.
- investigate vibrations on a spring-mass system
