A mass of 0.7 kg is attached to the end of a massless spring of spring constant 0.35 N/m. It is released from rest from an extended position. After 0.8 s, the speed of the mass is measured to be 1.5 m/s. What is the amplitude of oscillation? What is the total energy (relative ...

A new type of spring is found where the spring force F is given by F=-kx + bx^2 where k=400 N/ m and b=100 N/m^2 and x is the expansion (or compression) of the spring from its equilibrium position. The spring is attached to a point mass of 1 kg sitting on a horizontal ...

Hello, I posted this a bit ago, but am not sure the suggested solution was correct. Two physical pendulums (not simple pendulums) are made from meter sticks that are suspended from the ceiling at one end. The sticks are uniform and are identical in all respects, except that ...

The four parts in which I had to go through this investigation was: Part 1: Practice Part 2: Does mass affect the swing rate of a pendulum? Part 3:Does Arc length affect the swing rate of a pendulum? Part 4:Does Length affect the swing rate of a pendulum. It asks why was it ...

Because of friction and air resistance, each swing of a pendulum is a little shorter than the previous one. The lengths of the swings form a geometric sequence. Suppose the first swing of the pendulum has an arc length of 100 cm and a return swing of 99 cm. a.)On which swing ...

Given a simple pendulum of length r and mass m, determine the oscillation period T if the perturbation angle θ is very small (i.e. θ < 10degrees). How can I derive an equation for period using just that info?

Physics
The period of a simple pendulum with small amplitudes is given by: T=2πsqrt(L/g) So under those conditions, the period is independent of the mass and the initial amplitude, as long as the latter is small. So the only factor is the length, L.
