Springs are used in engineering to store energy or to provide restoring forces. Both compression and tension (extension) springs may be encountered. The deflection of a spring depends on the load applied to it, an observation enshrined in Hook’s Law. The unit enables the students to find out the properties of spring and proves some basic laws of physics like Hooke’s Law, Newton’ Law & spring desing rules.
The unit Compression of Spring is a wall mounted apparatus having accurately divided scale and vernier. Set of springs of different springs sizes are provided.
