Tethered Mass and Spring Model 1.0

The Tethered Mass and Spring model shows a mass constrained to move in the xdirection by a horizontal rod and connected to a spring of natural length L = 10. One end of the spring is connected to a movable (draggable) ceiling and the other end is connected to the mass. Users can drag the mass along the rod and users can control the height of the ceiling H by dragging which changes the stretch of the spring. The height H, the spring constant k, and the natural length of the spring L can also be adjusted using the sliders at the bottom of the position vs. time graph.<br /><br />The Tethered Mass and Spring model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a readytorun (compiled) Java archive. Double click the ejs_mech_lagrangian_TetheredMassAndSpring.jar file to run the program if Java is installed.
