So I have to write a report based on an experiment that I have conducted. I know that my report is connected with Simple Harmonic motion and Elastic force, but I do not know how to describe it in a more efficient/scientific way. Essentially, I am dropping a weight (constant) onto this sort of trampoline apparatus, and i am measuring how far the trampoline dips (amplitude)? I'm supposed to talk about the purpose of the experiment, and the relationship between my two variables, and I'm not sure as to how I should go about describing it
- F= k x
The Attempt at a Solution
How does the height at which a mass is dropped, affect the amplitude of a rubber band held trampoline?
(my poor attempt)
