Graphs and Tables in Excel

Mrs Physics is keen to get everyone using software to aid their Physics, so as part of the forces topic you will complete a Hooke’s Law experiment and write this up and use Excel to create your table and graph. The instructions are given in the booklets below. GLOW users and other users of Office 365 will be using the Excel 2016 version, but users of Office 2010 can use the booklets marked 2010.
