amplitude of a harmonic motion

Question

A bored student (in a biology lesson) holds one end of a flexible plastic ruler against the laboratory bench and licks the other end, setting the ruler into oscillation. The end of the ruler moves a total distance of 8.0cm as in the diagram and makes 28 complete oscillations in 10s.

What are the amplitude x0 and frequency f of the motion of the end of the ruler?

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
