Free Oscillations (spring)
This model shows free oscillations of a weight on a spring. Modify the mass of the weight m, its initial position x0, the elastic constant of the spring k, and the factor of viscous friction b, and observe the changes. Study the coordinate and velocity diagrams. Examine the graphs of potential and kinetic energies in free harmonic oscillations, as well as in damped oscillations in presence of viscous friction.
