Homework Help: Conceptual - Mass, Period, Spring Constant

  1. Nov 1, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    True or False

    Quadrupling the mass will double the period.
    Tripling the amplitude will sextuple the frequency.
    Doubling the amplitude will not change the frequency.
    Halving the amplitude will quadruple the frequency.
    Doubling the spring constant will halve the period

    2. Relevant equations

    w=(2pi)frequency
    *mass has no role in the period

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I put
    False
    False
    False
    True
    False

    What am I doing wrong?
