### Resonance and the driving frequency?

Why does resonance occur in a mass-spring system when the natural frequency = the driving frequency. I think it is because the driving force is always contributing to the kinetic energy of the system ...

### Can soldiers marching at the right frequency realistically cause a bridge to break?

In my physics class it was suggested that ancient armies had a rough understanding of the idea of a resonant frequency and so they "broke step" when crossing bridges so as to avoid a very high $Q$. I ...

### FWHM in resonance amplitude square derivation

Consider a linear harmonic oscillator subject to a periodic force: $$\ddot x + 2 \beta \dot x + \omega _0 ^2x = f_0\cos \omega t$$ The solution tends to: $$A \cos (\omega t - \delta)$$ where: ...
