Page 2 of 10 Physics 125 Midtenn - Winter 2005 1. () 0 A Biology student has designed a platfonn consisting of 4 identical springs with force constant k. Two students, one Bjology.and the other Engineering are bouncing in Simple Harmonic motion with a period T= 5 sec. At the bottom of the "oscillation" the Engineering student jumps off and one of the springs break. Find the new period of oscillation. (Assume mass of the Biology student to be "m" and the Engineering student "3m" and the platfonn is massless). Answer in seconds. @ . ~~ cg~-6
