A block attached to a spring with unknown spring constant oscillates with a period of 6.0 s. What is the period if the mass is doubled?

  • Physics -

    The period is the same. If you do a proof with different equations, the mass of an object doesn't change its period. However, if the length of the spring was changed the period then would change.

  • Physics -

    When you do the proof, the mass ends up canceling out of the equation so it can be ignored.
