Unformatted text preview: The oscillation frequency is therefore f=omega/(2 pi)=1/(2 pi)*sqrt(k/M)=1/(2 pi)*sqrt(2mgb/(m+I/R^2)). Method 2: (m+I/R^2) a=F=mg(dy/dx)=2 mgb x identical to a spring. Again, the effective mass is M=m+I/R^2 and the effective spring constant is 2mgb. note that the 1 cm offset in the definition of y(x) does not affect the oscillation frequency....
