This VPython tutorial shows the simulation of two Spring and one Mass system. The generalised Spring-Mass system can be understood efficiently by exploring a single mass attached to two springs. In this system, we have two springs, one end of each spring is attached to the rigid support whereas another end is attached to the mass. The motion of mass is influenced by the forces of both springs.
The spring-mass system is one of the simplest systems in physics. The spring-mass system consists of a spring whose one end is attached to a rigid support and the other end is attached to a movable object. When the spring is stretched or compressed, the spring tries to restore its position which results in oscillation of object around the equilibrium position. The equilibrium position is defined as the position when spring is at its normal length and the object does not experience any force.
