A tuning fork oscillates with simple harmonic motion described the equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x = 0.00150cos(2770t) (where t is seconds)

a) calculate the frequency in Hz of the tuning fork

b) Suggest why only this tuning fork (taken from a set of 10 forks) gets louder when held above a glass bottle full of milk.

I dont know how to go about this question. Any help greatly appreciated.
