Maximum Acceleration of an Oscillating System

  1. Jun 30, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The maximum displacement at the tip of the tine of a tuning fork oscillating at 440 Hz is 0.1 mm. What is the maximum acceleration in g’s?

    2. Relevant equations

    (1 g = 9.8m/sec2)

    3. The attempt at a solution
