Equivalent Mass of a Coil Spring.
Ruby, Lawrence
Physics Teacher, v38 n3 p140-41 Mar 2000
Finds that first-year college students can understand in detail the origin of the equivalent mass. Provides both a simple calculation derivation of this result as well as a noncalculus derivation. Argues that for every soft spring, the equivalent mass should be somewhere between m0/3 and m0/2. (CCM)
