Spring-Mass System: Calibrate Parameters
Understand the dynamics of a spring-mass system. This example uses a cellphone, attached vertically to a spring, to record accelerations. The experimental data is then used to calibrate the model parameters.
Carry out an experiment where you suspend a cellphone vertically connected to a spring.
The phone starts from rest, with its initial position 30 mm below the equilibrium. When the phone is released, it oscillates a few times before coming to a standstill.

Create a model of the spring-mass system.
The model is created using components from the MultiBody
