(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A horizontal plank (m = 2.0 kg, L = 1.0 m) is pivoted at one end. A spring

(k = 1.0 x 10

3

N/m) is attached at the other end, as shown in the figure. Find the angular frequency

(in rad/s) for small oscillations

2. Relevant equations

w = (mgd/I)^0.5 I= 1/3 ML^2

3. The attempt at a solution

w = (2*9.8*1/ (2/3)
