Simple Harmonic Motion

  • #1
1. Two people build precison timing devices, one with a simple pendulum, one with a simple mass-spring. Each is to have a period of 2 s. The Fg = 9.8 m/s^2. Select the appropriate parameters for this to happen. Part B - which device is more precise at the equator?



2. I have no idea :(



3. And again... no idea. How does simple harmonic motion relate to gravity?!?!

For a pendulum oscillating, how does the period relate to its length?

For spring with a mass, how does the period relate to its spring constant and mass?
