How do the stretch properties of a rubber band compare to these of a spring? With this hands-on lab, students experiment with these two different elastic materials to determine the relationship between the stretch distance and the force exerted by an elastic material. Students will discover Hooke's law for springs, and also learn that not all elastic materials follow this law. All the materials are reusable-truly a great value! Detailed instructions and Teacher Notes are provided. Standard laboratory equipment such as support stands and clamps are required.
Super Value Kit is complete for 8 student groups. All materials are reusable. A weight set is required and available separately. Replacement springs are also available separately.
