Name:___________________________ Activity: Period and frequency. Periodic motion repeats itself in time after and interval called the "period" [For this we use the symbol T ]. Frequency is another way to express the same thing by indicating how frequently (how many times) the motion repeats itself in a given unit of time. [For this we will use the symbol f ]. Frequency and period have a simple mathematical relationship. If the period of the motion is T , then the frequency of the motion is that it happens once per unit of time T . So: 1 f T = . The electrical voltage in a wall outlet pulsates at 60 cycles per second.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
