A uniform rod of length I~ has its motion restricted to rotating in a horizontal plane due to a frictionless vertical pin through the centre of the rod. An unstrelched spring of spring constant k is altached between a wall and the end of the rod. What is the period for small oscillations (9 small) in terms of k.

When a tuning fork falls into a deep well, a constant beat frequency of 8.0 Hz can be heard at the top of the well due to sound coming directly from the tuning fork and sound being reflected off the water at the bottom of the well. If the fork is vibrating at 88 Hz, at what tenninal speed (mlsec) is it falling?

There is air, n = 1.00, in. front of the lens and water, n = 1.33, after the lens. This lens is made of glass with n = 1.50. If a beam of light, parallel to the optic axis, is incident on the thick lens from the air side, where will it be brought to a focus? Answers are in cm and are measured relative to B, with positive numbers being to the right of B and negative numbers being to the left of B Answer in cm.and negative numbers being to the left of B Answer in cm....
