In the Experiment "Helical spring pendulum" the students have
determined the natural frequency of a spring pendulum and
established this frequency dependence on pendulum mass and spring
constant. In this experiment they should force a spring pendulum to
oscillate and from observations of the forced oscillation amplitude
make conclusions concerning the correlation between excitation
frequency and natural frequency.
Furthermore, the natural frequency of a spring pendulum should be
measured and then compared with the (approximate) natural frequency
determined in the second part of the experiment.
