Q1:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Which are true:

A) If the mass of the pendulum doubles, the period increases.

B) If the ship accelerates upward, the period does not change.

C) If the ship moves upward with a constant velocity, the period decreases.

D) If the ship accelerates downward at 9.8 m/s2, the pendulum will no longer oscillate.

E) If the length of the pendulum is doubled, the new period will be T0 multiplied by the square root of 2.

I'm just checking my answer here, wouldnt it only be A and E?

Q2:

A 0.950 kg mass is suspended from a spring with a spring constant of 159 N/m. The spring is attached to a rod which oscillates vertically at a frequency f. For what value of the frequency f will the system resonate?

I have no idea what to do here... i don't even remember my prof. talking about resonance...
