A Project on Soft Springs and the Slinky
Gluck, P.
Physics Education, v45 n2 p178-185 Mar 2010
Slinkies and soft springs readily lend themselves to experimental and theoretical investigations which are extensions of the usual high school material. We describe both the static and dynamic properties of these springs and suggest that some may be used in regular class work, while other aspects are ideal for individual projects. (Contains 9 figures.)
