ME7.3 Weight and Spring

A spring is attached on a table clamp and oscillates when the mass is displaced. Under the assumption that the spring coefficient is constant and neglecting any kind of friction (like air resistance), energy is conserved. The displacement of the mass at each oscillation will be close to the original displacement. A meter stick can be used to measure the displacement, or a simple mark on the table will suffice.
