Question #69060

In an experiment to determine the period of oscillation of a loaded spiral spring, the equation of a simple harmonic oscillator a=−(k/m)x, where the symbols have their usual meaning, was used. Write down the equation for the angular frequency ω in terms of k and m, the effective mass of the system

Expert's answer

The equation of a simple harmonic oscillator is

a=-ω^2 x.

Thus,

ω^2=k/m.

The equation for the angular frequency ω in terms of k and m, the effective mass of the system is

ω=√(k/m).

a=-ω^2 x.

Thus,

ω^2=k/m.

The equation for the angular frequency ω in terms of k and m, the effective mass of the system is

ω=√(k/m).
