Experiment 21: Forced Oscillations and Resonance in a Simple Harmonic Motion System (i) 2πf o = (k/M) 1/2 T = 2π√(M/k), 1/f o = T 1/f o = 2π√(M/k) f o = (1/2π) √(k/M) 2πf o = (k/M) 1/2 (ii) Dr. Placek told us not to worry about answering this question. (iii) Both are a result of excitation of the resonant frequency of the object. In the case of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, the wind caused vibrations at resonant frequency. Because of insufficient damping, the amplitude of those vibrations got very large and in turn caused the bridge to collapse. As for the glass, the resonance may not be as strong but if excited by external pressures at that frequency (the sound wave of the soprano’s voice), it can result in a greatly magnified amplitude of vibrations which can then in turn break the glass. Table I shows the natural frequency (f o) , frequency at maximum amplitude (f m) , and percent error (% Err). Table I Frequency (Hz) Data
