### Vibrational frequency of piezoelectric material

When a piezoelectric material experience a stress it generates voltage, and also when you applied voltage the piezo-material experience a vibrational frequency. Using oscilloscope we can determine the ...

### Interaction of a pendulum with other pendulums hanging at different heights

This is a question from a competitive test. I am not sure how to reason this out. By the length of the string, S should have the maximum amplitude. But this would be the case only when the pendulum P ...

### Cavity resonator modelling and simulation of em fields inside the cavity

I want to model a cylindrical cavity resonator and study the different modes of em fields inside it using MATLAB/COMSOL. Please refer me books/articles or other resources so that I can achieve my goal....

### Can friction change the resonance frequency of a system?

I am simulating the transient response of a mass-spring-damping system with friction. The excitation is given in the form of a base acceleration. What I am not sure about is: can the friction change ...

### Harmonics and the frequencies

Let's say we had a pipe which was closed on one side and open on the other. We can find the wavelength for the first harmonic. To find the second harmonic we just add one more antinode and find a new ...

### Why maximum energy transfer at natural frequency even if max amplitude occurs below $f_0$

This is a paragraph from my book: "For a damped system, the resonant frequency at which the amplitude is a maximum is lower than the natural frequency.However, maximum transfer of energy, or energy ...

### Sound pitch of glass with water

I have a glass (made from glass) at room temperature. I poured very hot tea in it and started stirring. No extra tea is poured in the glass. When hitting the glass with the spoon, I noticed the ...

### How can I get the Resonant Frequencies (Bode plot)? (Response of 2-DOF System)

I want to study the response of the system. I want to find the resonant frequency of the sprung mass (m1) and the resonant frequency of the unsprung mass (m2). Because I am not sure if I have ...

### Role of Cavity Resonators in continuous wavelength-electron paramagnetic resonance(CW-EPR)

Why is it necessary to place the sample in a cavity resonator for obtaining EPR spectrum in CW-EPR? What role does a cavity resonator play in a CW-EPR spectrometer?

### Swing: why does the body position modify the amplitude?

When a person swings, why does the amplitude of oscillations increase if the person changes the body position ? That is, when descending and approaching the vertical position, if the person extend his ...

### If there are two different standing waves of different lengths in an open air column, what frequency would resonate?

Suppose I am playing a hypothetical woodwind instrument with both ends open. Somewhere along the length of the tube is a hole, which cannot be at or near the exact center of the tube for the sake of ...

### LCR circuit at resonance

I am studying about the LCR circuit and have a question regarding potential difference across inductor and capacitor. From the thing I have studied I came to know about that potential across inductor ...
I am working with a matrix on a harmonic oscillator problem and the lowest (absolute) frequency $\omega_0$ where the matrix becomes singular is the resonant frequency. Now I obtained this frequency ...
