Thus, we see that the block mass is inversely proportional to the harmonic number squared. Thus, if the 447 gram block corresponds to harmonic number n then 447 286.1 = ( n + 1) 2 n 2 = n 2 + 2 n + 1 n 2 = 1 + 2 n + 1 n 2 . Therefore, 447 286.1 – 1 = 0.5624 must equal an odd integer (2 n + 1) divided by a squared integer ( n 2 ). That is, multiplying 0.5624 by a square (such as 1, 4, 9, 16, etc) should give us a number very close (within experimental uncertainty) to an odd number (1, 3, 5, …). Trying this out in succession (starting with multiplication by 1, then by 4, …), we find that multiplication by 16 gives a value very close to 9; we conclude n = 4 (so n 2 = 16 and 2 n + 1 = 9). Plugging m = 0.447 kg, n = 4, and the other values given in the problem, we find μ = 0.000845 kg/m = 0.845 g/m. 61.

The horizontal component of the resultant is y mh = y 1 y 3 = y 1 y 1 /3 = 2 y 1 /3. The vertical component is y mv = y 2 = y 1 /2.

Setting x = 0 in a y = ϖ ² y (see the solution to part (b) of Sample Problem 16-2) where y = y m sin ( k x - ϖ t + φ ) gives a y = ϖ ² y m sin ( t + φ ) as the function being plotted in the graph. We note that it has a negative “slope” (referring to its t -derivative) at t = 0: d a y d t = d ( ϖ ² y m sin (-ϖ t+ φ 29 d t = y m ϖ 3 cos ( - ϖ t + φ ) < 0 at t = 0 . This implies that cos φ < 0 and consequently that φ is in either the second or third quadrant. The graph shows (at t = 0) a y = - 100 m/s², and (at another t ) a max = 400 m/s².

### What students are saying

• 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.
