Oscillations and amplitude

  1. Nov 20, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    An oscillator with a mass of 500 g and a period of 0.300 s has an amplitude that decreases by 1.40% during each complete oscillation.
    If the initial amplitude is 11.4 cm, what will be the amplitude after 38.0 oscillations?

    You are going to have to show some work before I or (hopefully) anyone else will help you.

    Take a step back from the problem and read it carefully. I believe you'll be able to shed some light on this situation yourself.
