A small fly of mass 0.13 g is caught in a spider's web. The web vibrates predominately with a frequency of 1.0 Hz.
(a) What is the value of the effective spring constant k for the web?

(b) At what frequency would you expect the web to vibrate if an insect of mass 0.54 g were trapped?

I received 194.8 N/m and 46.9 Hz for (a) and (b), respectively. Could someone check this work for me quick and confirm this is correct? If it is not and you wouldn't mind helping me out, I'll post all the work/equations I have done.
