Particle Vibration, Velocity, Gravity, Force

  1. Apr 24, 2015 #1
    If my assumption is correct, Particles are vibrating is some repetitive way which can be charted as a sine wave on a graph. If you start at 0, go up, then down below 0 then up to 0 again you have completed a "cycle."

    The rate of cycles is known as Frequency.

    Does Velocity and/or Gravity affect the Frequency of Particle Vibration? If so, how?

    Does a Particle with higher Velocity have a lower Frequency (vibrate slower?) Why?
    Does a Particle affected by a higher intensity of Gravity have a lower Frequency (vibrate slower?) Why?
    Does a Particle affected by a higher intensity of a Force have a lower Frequency (vibrate slower?) Why?

    Your assumption is wrong. Where did you get that from?

    As chrisver said, your assumption is wrong but to give you any further answer it would be helpful to know, as he said, where you got that misunderstanding and also what kind of particle you are asking about.

    It seems to be so that we don't know, some say high speed matter vibrates slower, some say it vibrates faster:
