'The MassSpring app is a basic physics lab, in which a block is attached to an ideal spring. You can set the mass of the block, the spring constant of the spring, and the initial position of the block. The block is released from rest from that initial position, and then oscillates back and forth horizontally on a frictionless surface. This motion is an example of what we call simple harmonic motion. The spring is at its natural length when the...
