A computer to be used in a satellite must be able to withstand accelerations of up to 23 times the acceleration due to gravity. In a test to see if it meets this specification, the computer is bolted to a frame that is vibrated back and forth in simple harmonic motion at a frequency of 11.6 Hz. What is the minimum amplitude of vibration that must be used in this test?
