IB Physics: Optional Practical: Investigating resonance

In this exercise a slinky spring will be forced to vibrate at different frequencies to enable the drawing of a resonance curve and an investigation into the phase difference between driver and driven. Changing the damping of a spring is difficult so to investigate the affect of damping on resonance an algodoo simulation will be used.It is easy to obtain resonance in a slinky spring by moving your hand up and down at...
