Period for harmonic motion (horizontal)

  1. Oct 8, 2012 #1
    Consider a light flexible rod placed on a horizontle table with part of the rod (length say "x") hanging freely (ie without support of the table) see attachment for clarity

    A mass is also hung from the rod t one end.

    Are there any equations that relate the Period T of the end of the rod to the length "x" , and the mass(hanging) ?

    Look up "cantilever with end mass frequency".
