Unformatted text preview: Which can affect the period of oscillation? A. Only I D. Only I and III B. Only II E. I, II, and III C. Only III 3. A model for data from a mass-spring system arrives at the following expression: x = (0.47 m) cos[(0.16 rad/s) t + 0.23 rad]+ 2.0 m a) What is the maximum value of x for this oscillation? The maximum value of x is not the same as the amplitude. x max = 0.47 m + 2.0 m x max = 2.47 m units b) What is the minimum value of x for this oscillation? x min = – 0.47 m + 2.0 m x min = 1.53 m units c) What is the angular frequency of this oscillation? = 0.16 rad/s units d) What is the period of this oscillation? T = 2 π/ϖ = 2 π/ (0.16 rad/s) T = 39 s units...
