For proving Hooke’s Law of Elasticity, i.e. that the elongation of an object is directly proportional to the load applied and for demonstrating the phenomenon of simple harmonic motion of a vibrating weight, potential energy etc.
The apparatus consists of an adjustable mirrored scale 12cm long, graduated in millimeters, mounted on a support rod fitted on a base.
A hook attached to the rod supports a spring with a weight holder and slotted weight; and an indicator.
This apparatus is provided with 4 slotted weights and a weight holder, each of 50gm.
