A mass on a string of unknown length oscillates as a pendulum with a period of 4.0 (s). Parts a to d are independent questions, each referring to the initial situation. What is the period if:
a. The mass is doubled? in seconds
b. The string length is doubled? in seconds
c. The string length is halved? in seconds
d. The amplitude is doubled? in seconds

Solution Summary

The solution calculates the period of each condition from a-d with step-by-step calculations and all formulas shown.

The length of a simple pendulum is 0.71 m, the pendulum bob has a mass of 311 grams, and it is released at an angle of 12° to the vertical.
With what frequency (in hertz) does it vibrate? Assume simple harmonic motion.
What is the pendulum bob's speed (in m/s) when it passes through the lowest point of the swing?

88. A simple pendulum of length 20 cm and mass 5.0 g is suspended in a race car traveling with constant speed 70 m/s around a circle of radius 50 m. If the pendulum undergoes small oscillations in a radial direction about its equilibrium position, what is the frequency of oscillation?

A small uniform cylinder of radius R rolls without slipping along the inside of a large fixed cylinder of radius r (r>R). Show that the period of Oscillation of the rolling cylinder is equivalent to that of a simple pendulum whose length is 3(R-r)/2.

Please help me with these problems. Thank you.
Position probability distribution for a pendulum. Consider the classical motion of a pendulum bob which, for small amplitudes of oscillation, moves effectively as a harmonic oscillator along a horizontal axis according to the equation.
x(t) = Asinwt
The probability that the b

What is the free fall acceleration in a location where the period of a 2.15 m long pendulum is 2.94s? Answer in units of m/s2. The answer must be written within + or - 0.14%

A pendulum is released from rest at a displacement of .31 meters from its equilibrium position. It is stopped abruptly and uniformly at its equilibrium position and it is observed that a loose bit of metal slides without resistance off the pendulumand falls to the floor .95 meters below.

15. The displacement of a mass oscillating on a spring is given by x(t) = x_m * cos(wt + ph). If the initial displacement is zero and the initial velocity is in negative x direction, then the phase constant phi is:
16. Mass m, oscillating on the end of a spring with sprin

A file is attached for the sample
a mass of 0.5 kg is suspened from a spring, which stretches by 8 cm. the support from

the tip be tapped to make the strip oscillate with the maximum amplitude?

The diagram shows a simple pendulum consisting of a mass M = 1.25 kg suspended by a thin string with a length of l = 0.910 m. The mass swings back and forth between ±q0. T is the magnitude of the tension in the string.
1) True or false
T depends only on q. {q is for theta}
The vertical component of tension is constant
