Unformatted text preview: D and T (3.963) so there is a small correction. 6. T D (4.3097) calculated in question compared to T D (3.944) in part III has a 9.27% difference, and this is less than 10% so they are very close. 7. (a) If we use a stiffer spring, this will cause the frequency to increase and the period (T ) found by 1/frequency would decrease. (b) If we used a bigger sail to increase air resistance on the system, the frequency and period (T D ) of the oscillation would not change because the string will still be the same and it will still go back and forth as many times as the small sail. But the amplitude of the oscillation will be affected. 8. The glider exhibits damped oscillations even without the sail because there might be a random error due to the fact that the track is not completely frictionless, and this causes a damping on the system but small compare to the sail....
