Effect of beat

  1. Dec 23, 2009 #1
    I find the equation of beat:

    [tex]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})[/tex]

    What values do I get to [tex]F_o[/tex], [tex]w_o[/tex] and [tex]w[/tex] 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.
