by a measured amount (using the ruler) and release it. Note the amount you displaced the mass. Qualitatively describe the motion. Where isthe center of the oscillation? [1 pt] 6. Predict the period of the oscillation, given the value determined in problem 4. [1 pt] 7. To accurately determine the period, you want to let the spring oscillate many times, so that yo u can get an average period. Pull the mass down by 10 cm. Using the stopwatch, determine how ong it takes for the spring to complete 10-20 periods. Determine the oscillation period by taking that total time and dividing by the number of oscillations/periods you counted. [1 pt] 8. Pull the mass down twice as far as before and determine the oscillation period using the same method as in problem #7. Did the period change? [1 pt]
