Homework Help: Maximum acceleration machine problem

  1. Mar 15, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Analysis of the recording shows a maximum acceleration is of 1000 m/s2 .
    Given that 25 Hz is the maximum frequency and the maximum amplitude is 0.05m,
    will the machine be capable of faithfully reproducing this vibration trace?

    2. Relevant equations The attempt at a solution[/b]

    max acceleration = Aw^2
    = 0.05*w^2

    w= 2 pi f
    = 2 pi * 25
    =50 pi

    max acelration= 1233 m/s2

    machine wont be able to reproduce these vibration as more accerleartion is needed.......1233, as analsis only shows max accelration as 1000 m/s2

    is this correct??
