I received a spring constant on the problem below to be .005 N/m. I was wondering if this was even possible? When I got the frequency in the next part of the question, the frequency made sense, but i never thought a spring constant could come out to be so small. 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? So is .005 N/m an acceptable spring constant? Thanks to anyone who responds.
