Getting a feeling for spring systems

Springs are often used in physics and engineering as simple model for complex phenomena. It therefore really helps to have developed 'a feeling' for these basic systems – ideally first hand.

Hooke's law

Observing the linear relationship between a spring's extension and the applied force is a classical experiment, everyone should have done. However, when using a normal tension spring from a hardware store, your students might be in for a surprise...

Mechanical resonance

It makes a difference to read about resonance and to feel it for yourself. Grant your students this haptic experience. It will come in handy whenever you use springs to model more complex systems.
