    Simple Harmonic Motion: Frequency for vertical Oscillations

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    A hanging wire has a length of 1.90m. When a steel ball of mass 50.0kg is suspended from the wire, the wire stretches by 2.30mm .

    If the ball is pulled down a small additional distance and released, at what frequency will it vibrate?
    Assume that the stress on the wire is less than the proportional limit.
    Take the free fall acceleration to be 9.80m/s^2.
