Lab Questions-

Parameter A:

In order to produce data with set amplitude of .10 m, the aspect that must be changed is the amplitude. A governs the maximum or minimum of the graph because it is multiplied by the products within the sine function.

Parameter D:

Our group reduced the initial displacement before release of the spring so that the offset of its horizontal displacement would be as minimal as normal.  Ensuring this reduction in the offset makes the graph as symmetrical along the time axis as possible because the displacement is nearly all in the y direction.

Parameter C:

Data began collection when C was at zero or position was zero and in order to make C equal pi, data would have had to be collected when the position was returning to zero from falling down from the apex of its motion.

Parameter B:

The period of the sine function is one because when B is 6.28, , and  equals 6.28 so the same number divided by the same number equals 1.
