    radians/s
  3. Hooke's law
    Restoring force of a spring
    Image Upload 3

    • k = spring constant
    • x = displacement
  4. Angular frequency of a spring
    • Image Upload 4
    • oscillations/s
  5. potential energy of a spring
    Image Upload 5
  6. kinetic energy of a spring
    Image Upload 6
  7. Restoring force of a pendulum
    Image Upload 7


    θ= angle between pendulum arm and vertical
  8. Angular frequency of a pendulum
    Image Upload 8

    L= length of arm
  9. Potential energy of a pendulum
    Image Upload 9

    • h = height difference from equilibrium
    • At maximum displacement, potential energy is maximum
  10. Speed of a wave
    v = fλ

    for light: c = fλ

    c= 3 x 108

    λ = wavelength
  11. Length of pipe open at both ends
    • Image Upload 10
    • n= harmonic
  12. Length of pipe closed at one end
    Image Upload 11
  13. Intensity of sound
    • Image Upload 12
    • intensity is the average rate per unit area that energy is transferred across a perpendicular surface by the wave.
    • P = power
    • A = amplitude
  14. Sound level
    Image Upload 13

    I= lowest intensity of hearing
  15. BEat frequency
    Image Upload 14
  16. Doppler effect
    Image Upload 15

    • vd = velocity of detector. Negative If source stops and detector is moving away.
    • vs =velocity of source. Negative if detector stops and source is moving towards.
    • v = speed of sound in air
    • f' = perceived frequency
    • f = actual frequency
