# Effect of beat

1. Dec 23, 2009

I find the equation of beat:

$$x(t) = [\frac{2F_o}{m(w_o^2 - w^2)}sin(\frac{(w_o - w)t}{2})]sin(\frac{(w_o + w)t}{2})$$

What values do I get to $$F_o$$, $$w_o$$ and $$w$$ to generate the graph ?

I use program maple to plot graph.

Well, you want the frequencies to be sort of close. Try F0= 5, m = 1,w=2pi, w0=2pi-1/2 and plot it from 0 to 20pi.
