Spring Force Damped Harmonic Motion

This experiment uses the computer/multimedia system to measure the motion of a cart as it oscillates on an angled track. A spring attaches the cart to a force sensor and an acceleration sensor attached to the cart measures the acceleration of the cart. The computer can plot a real time graph of the results of this experiment.
