### Speed of waves in a spring

I recently bought a small Slinky spring so as to observe the speed of a wave along its length. I stretched it out quite tightly in a HORIZONTAL position on a spring holder and then plucked at it on ...

### Change in F vs x graph if spring is torn in half? [duplicate]

The force required to stretch a spring varies with the distance as shown in the figure. If the experiment is performed with the above spring of half the length, the line OA will: (a) shift toward F-...

### Driven oscillator with constant velocity

I am trying to simulate a driven oscillator of sorts on the computer. I have a 1D spring-mass system, attached to a point in space. To make the math easier, I'm assuming the attachment point is right ...
