Refer to the following information for the next four questions.
The following vibration graphs were produced with a digital distance probe as it "watched" a vibrating inertial balance. Note the co-ordinates of the highlighted arrows.
This clamp combination's vibrations should be counted over what time interval?
How many complete vibrations occurred during this time interval?
What was this clamp combination's frequency?
What was the period of this clamp combination's motion?
Refer to the following information for the next nine questions.
1. What would be the best title for this graph?
Mass vs Period Squared
Period Squared vs Mass
2. State the co-ordinates for two
grid points
.
3. What is the numerical value of this line's slope?
4. In what units is the slope measured?
5. Write the equation for this line.
6. What is the significance of this graph's y-axis intercept?
7. Based on your line's equation, calculate the mass present in the trial represented by the vibrations graphs in Part I of this worksheet.
8. Is this an interpolated or extrapolated value?
interpolated
extrapolated
9. Based on your line's equation, what is the spring constant for your inertial balance?
