Is it acceleration?
I found this graph online:
Would the answer be acceleration?
Yes, but what's your reasoning?
Based on the graph: when v = 0, the mass has no kinetic energy, KE = ½mv2. Therefore, all of its energy is in the form of elastic potential energy, PEelastic = ½kx2. When PEelastic is maximum, the restoring force within the spring is also maximized. This results in the mass' acceleration to be maximized as the spring acts to return the mass to its equilibrium position.
What about this one...number 2:
τnet = Iα
α = angular acceleration = v/r
I = moment of inertia = mr2
Is the answer center of gravity
Because I don't think center of gravity has anything to do with it...
Good. Another way to look at it is in terms of Hooke's law. The restoring force--and thus the acceleration--is maximum when the displacement from equilibrium is maximum.
This is what you need. If the net torque is constant, what can you say about alpha?
With respect to I (moment of inertia) you mean?
I think we can safely assume that the moment of inertia of the object is constant.
So angular acceleration will not be constant but will be changing.
How did you determine that? Look back at that equation.
I'm not sure. I guessed...
Cause I remember for the Conservation of Angular Momentum concept,
L = Iω
If L is to stay constant, then when you increase I, ω decreases. And if you decrease I, ω increases.
I thought it was a similar concept with this question - the whole inverse relationship.
Wait so you're saying if the net torque is constant, then BOTH I (moment of inertia) and alpha (angular acceleration) are constant.
Conservation of angular momentum has nothing to do with this one.
Imagine if instead of torque, the problem said that there was a constant net force on the object. What would you conclude then?
Well we can assume that the object doesn't change its moment of inertia (otherwise the problem is silly). The key conclusion is that alpha is constant (and non-zero). And what does that tell you?
F = ma.... So a constant F means a constant acceleration a. Which means, constant non-zero acceleration.
Velocity is changing?
No, it means that if a = some non-zero value, then velocity is changing.
So the answer is angular velocity...
Thanks for the clarification!
I have one more quick question!
This may be a really obvious question but...
is it the highest frequency, 740 Hz?
