Oscillation Frequency

  1. Mar 14, 2013 #1
    How does the oscillation frequency compare when being horizontal and when being on an inclined plane (assuming frictionless).

    I thought this:

    When on Horizontal surface

    frequency = angular frequency (w) / 2∏

    Since frequency does not depend on acceleration, the frequency would remain the same?

    HI,
    you are describing frequency in what field exactly ?

    It depends on the problem, a Radar EM wave travels with constant speed C , but the frequency is dynamic, it can start at 150 KHz and move toward 450Khz

    Hi KHMOU YOUSSEF! WELCOME TO PF! :smile:

    My guess is it's a mass on the end of a spring. :wink:
