The mass is doubled? in seconds b. The string length is doubled? in seconds c. The string length is halved? in seconds d. The ampli

An 79.1 kg astronaut is working on the engines of his ship, which is drifting through space with a constant velocity. The astronaut, wishing to get a better view of the Universe, pushes against the ship and much later finds himself 30.4 m behind the ship. Without a thruster, the only way to return to the ship is to throw his 0.5

I have to find the mass of an object. The problem is that my result is a negative one. The problem is as follows: A teacher demonstrates a harmonic motion with an object of mass m0, hung on a wire with constant k. A mass of 1,25g is added to the object, which results in a loss of 2.5% of the original frequency. What is the
