Spring Cart

These two movies can be used to investigate the relationship between work and kinetic energy. Use spring-cal.mp4 to find the spring constant. With spring-cart.mp4, mark the left end of the right cart and the right end of the left cart. The difference between these two is the spring length, which you can use to find the spring force on the left cart. You can also use the mark on the left cart to calculate its velocity.
