    What is Spring Mass System? A spring-mass system in simple terms can be described as a spring sytem where a block is hung or attached at the free end of the spring. The spring-mass system can usually be used to find the period of any object performing the simple harmonic motion. The spring-mass system can also be used in a wide variety of applications. For instance, spring-mass system can be used to simulate the motion of human tendons using computer graphics as well as foot skin deformation. How Does Mass Affect the Period of a Spring? Consider a spring with mass m with spring constant k, in a closed environment spring demonstrates a simple harmonic motion. T = 2π √m/k From the above equation, it is clear that the period of oscillation is free from both gravitational acceleration and amplitude. Also, a constant force cannot alter the period of oscillation. Meanwhile, the time period is directly proportional to the mass of the body that is fixed to the spring. When a heavy object is attached to it, it will oscillate more slowly. Spring Mass System Arrangements Spring mass systems can be arranged in two ways. These include; The parallel combination of springs Series combination of springs
