Once they get moving, the adult, by comparison to the child, will necessarily swing with  A. a much greater period Mass adult> mass child ____ 2. An oscillator at a frequency of 1.25 Hz will make 100 vibrations in  D. 80 s 1 vibration = 1 cycle 1hz = 1cycle/s , f = cycle/s = 125 = 100/x x = 80s ____ 3. Suppose a piano tuner hears 4 beats per second when listening to the combined sound from his tuning fork and the piano note being tuned. After slightly tightening the string, he hears 3 beats per second. What should he do?  C. Continue tightening the string to raise the string tension. ____ 4.

Which is the louder (if they are being detected by equivalent microphones)?  Answer is is A because higher amplitude is higher loudnesss ____ 6. The end of a whip antenna is oscillating in SHM with frequency f and amplitude A . Its maximum speed is given by  A. 2 π f A 2pief=squarerootk/m sovle use formula v= square root (k/m)(A^2-x^2) = 2piefa ____ 7.
