## Model:

The equations that model the motion of the mass scale system are:

Mathematically, the restoring force $F$ is given by

$F = - k (\theta - \theta_{0})$

where $F$ is the restoring elastic force exerted by the spring (in SI units: N), k is the spring constant (N·m−1), and $\theta$ is the displacement from the equilibrium position $\theta_{0}$ (in radians).

Thus, this model assumes the following ordinary differential equations:

$\frac{\delta \theta }{\delta t} = \omega$

$\frac{\delta \omega }{\delta t} = -\frac{k}{m} (\theta - \theta_{0}) - b\frac{\omega}{m}$

where the terms

$-\frac{k}{m} (\theta - \theta_{0})$ represents the restoring force component as a result of the coil spring extending and compressing.

$- b\frac{\omega}{m}$ represents the damping force component as a result of dampers retarding the  mass's motion.

## Rotation:

in order of the rotation to be sync with the typically mass scale

transformation of $\frac{\pi}{2}$ is made for the arrows so that it starts at the top
initial angular displacement of  $2 \pi$ so that the pointer moves towards final angle of random value say $\pi$ which is 2.50 kg.
