1. Homework Statement
2. Homework Equations
w = √k/m
w = 2π/P
ƒ = 1/P
3. The Attempt at a Solution
I feel like I'm so close to the answer, I think it has something to do with the fact that there's a spring and pulley in the system that is throwing my answer off. I have
√k/m = 2π/P
So,
P = 2π(√m/k) Then we take the number one and divide it by P to find frequency
1/2π(√m/k) which I get to be
ƒ = √(k/m) / 2π, which is close, but not quite. The answer is actually
ƒ = √(k/m)/(4π)
Can anyone help me understand where I'm going wrong? Thank you! :)
