# How does frequency relate to mass and the spring constant?

## How does frequency relate to mass and the spring constant?

The natural resonant frequency of the oscillator can be changed by changing either the spring constant or the oscillating mass. Using a stiffer spring would increase the frequency of the oscillating system. Adding mass to the system would decrease its resonant frequency.

How do you find frequency when given mass?

Using e= (mc2) and e= hf, then mc2 = hf, then f= (mc2)/h. c2= (299,792,458 meteres/second) squared h= 6.626075 x 10^-34 Js (joule seconds) If these are correct, then Frequency= Mass x [8.987551787 x 1016 (m/s)squared]/6.626075 x 10^-34 Joule seconds.

What is the unit for frequency?

hertz (Hz)
The number of periods or cycles per second is called frequency. The SI unit for frequency is the hertz (Hz).

### What is the unit for angular frequency?

Table 2.

Quantity Symbol Unit
Phase (phase angle) φ, θ rad

Frequency ν, f s−1 (Hz)

What are the units for spring constant?

Unit of spring constant is N/m.

How do you find the frequency?

To calculate frequency, divide the number of times the event occurs by the length of time.

## What are the two units for frequency?

Frequency
SI unit hertz (Hz)
Other units cycles per second (cps) revolutions per minute (rpm or r/min)
In SI base units s−1
Derivations from other quantities f = 1 / T

How is frequency measured?

Frequency measurement: Frequency can be measured by following ways, Counting: Calculating the frequency of a repeating event is accomplished by counting the number of times that event occurs within a specific time period, then dividing the count by the length of the time period.

What is the unit of frequency?

The number of periods or cycles per second is called frequency. The SI unit for frequency is the hertz (Hz). One hertz is the same as one cycle per second.

### What are the three units of frequency?

The frequency would have units of cycles/second, waves/second or vibrations/second.

What is k in F KX?

Hooke’s law measures the force exerted by the spring to the object attached to it with the help of the following equation. F = –kx. Where k is the spring constantand measures how stiff and strong the spring is and x is the distance the spring is stretched or compressed away from its equilibrium or rest position.

What is unit for frequency?

The number of periods or cycles per second is called frequency. The SI unit for frequency is the hertz (Hz). One hertz is the same as one cycle per second.
