EF-2.2 Simple Harmonic Motion

 

EF-2.2 Simple Harmonic Motion

The EF-2.2 Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM) experiments kit enables students to understand the effect of mass and length of a pendulum on SHM and the period of oscillation. The relationship between SHM and gravity is evaluated using the Kater’s pendulum, as well as understanding SHM in a mass spring system.

Description

The EF-2.2 Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM) experiments kit enables students to understand the effect of mass and length of a pendulum on SHM and the period of oscillation. The relationship between SHM and gravity is evaluated using the Kater’s pendulum, as well as understanding SHM in a mass spring system.

The Engineering Fundamentals range is designed to enable students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of engineering by the process of learning via hands-on experimentation. The modular hands-on tray based system is supplied in conjunction with a multifunctional Base Unit enabling the student to conduct their own experiments in subjects such as Statics, Dynamics, Mechanisms and Kinematics.

Each kit is supplied with a highly visual user friendly operational guide, enabling the student to understand the theory of the subject by the application of practical experimentation.
