The Physics of Light & Sound Instructions Complete the following exercises in class on Monday, May 23. Feel free to work together in groups or to consult with your instructor. These exercises are for your benefit and need not be turned in. Make sure you understand all of the material! 1. A pendulum swings back and forth. Explain physically why it returns approximately to the same point after each swing. 2. A pendulum is raised to 5 cm above the lowest point in its swing. What will be its speed when it reaches that lowest point? 5 cm v??? 3. Most grandfather clocks have a pendulum that ticks (makes half a swing) each second. What length of pendulum is required to produce this periodic motion? (g=9.8 m/s 2 ). 4. In reality, a pendulum will eventually damp and come to rest at its equilibrium position. Can you explain physically why this happens? 5. Medical applications of ultrasound use frequencies of up to 2 x 10 7 Hz. What is the wavelength of this frequency in air?

    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.
