1) Two springs, A and B, have the same spring constant (k). Spring A supports a
mass (mA) and spring B supports a mass (mg). The mass on spring A is half as
big as the mass on spring B.
(a) Which spring has
1) Two strings of the same material, one thick and the other thin, are joined together
to form one long string. A periodic wave, produced by an external mechanical
source maintaining the wave on the st
1) A transverse wave of amplitude 0.05m is propagating on a string to the right, as
indicated by the arrow on the figure below. The graph indicates the shape of the
string at a particular instant.
Lab 2: Standing Waves
The goal of the lab was to observe properties of a standing wave on a string with a fixed
frequency. The experiment aimed to examine the relationship between harmonic number n
and tension of string described by the equations
