Leaf springs are thin metal plates that are elastically deformed under load: When a force is applied to a
leaf spring, then it is subject to deformation. A characteristic of such an elastic deformation is that the
original shape is re-formed when the force is no longer active. In this experiment, the dependence of the
deformation on the force applied is to be examined.


Displace a leaf spring from its rest position and measure the restoring force with a dynamometer. Evaluate
the measurement results in a graph (restoring force against displacement).
