At what frequency would you expect the web to vibrate if an insect of mass 0.52 g were trapped? Hint: use stiffness constant found in part 1. Hint: after the insect is trapped, the mass of the oscillator has increases by insect's mass, so the mass in the formula for natural frequency also has changed.


Hz
