Standing waves

  1. Jun 7, 2008 #1
    An ob ject moves with simple harmonic motion. If the amplitude and
    the period are both doubled, the ob ject’s maximum speed is


    I believe the object's maximum speed would be halved correct? Considering the regular velocity does not depend on the Amplitude and only the Period would affect it?

    Hi yahoo32! :smile:

    Thanks for the PM.
    Hint: Think of a pendulum.

    Double the amplitude … what happens to the maximum velocity? :smile:

    Ahhh! So max v = A w . Therefore doubling T and A will keep the max velocity the same, correct?
