This apparatus allows the period of the oscillations of the mass-spring system to be measured.

The mass on the weight carrier can be altered and timings taken for the different masses using the timer.  Plotting T2 against mass allows the gradient to be determined which can be used to calculate the spring constant.

An AQA required activity.
