Air Spring with Oscillating Steel Ball

OSCILLATIONS - Harmonic Motion A glass column is attached to a large flask. A highly machined steel ball in the glass column acts as an air spring. The ball oscillates in the column with simple harmonic motion. The motion of the ball is heavily damped and quickly dies out after several oscillations. This is really a demonstration of the difference between adiabatic and isothermal measurements of specific heat.
