In the previous experiments, the students determined the
oscillation period of a spring and of a thread pendulum, and
its dependence on the mass. They also determined the spring
constant and pendulum length respectively.
In this experiment they should establish the dependence of the
oscillation period on the mass and length of a leaf spring
Graphs generated from the results should be investigated, and
the analogy to a thread pendulum considered.
