Rubric for Report # 2Phys 2215 (Hooke’s Law)
Title Experiment and DateIntroduction/Theory (3 points) What are the main purposes of this experiment?
Brief summary of the theory of Hooke’s Law and how to determine the
Hooke’s Law limit.
Procedure General description of the experimental method used (noting differences inprocedures and goals for each of the 5 questions (i.e. measurements of k and
destructive testing) A simplified sketch of the experimental set up.
Results Summarize your results for the 5 experiments (include tables and graphs)
Qu1: Test spring specifications and mass for spring damage. Qu2: Average k and its uncertainty for 1st spring (from table and graph) and
% comparison Qu3: Estimation of Hooke’s Law limit for 1st spring Qu4: Average k and its uncertainty for 2nd spring and its Hooke’s law limit Qu5: Average k and its uncertainty for 3rd spring and its Hooke’s law limit
Discussion Comparison of the measured average values of k and their uncertainties (for
questions 2, 4 and 5) with your expectations.
Discussion on how well you were able to estimate the Hooke’s law limit for
your springs (questions 1 and 3) – referring to graphs/tables of results.General Well written and clear graphs and figures Reveals a good understanding of the experiments
