### 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 ...

### Speed of waves in a spring

I recently bought a small Slinky spring so as to observe the speed of a wave along its length. I stretched it out quite tightly in a HORIZONTAL position on a spring holder and then plucked at it on ...

### Change in F vs x graph if spring is torn in half? [duplicate]

The force required to stretch a spring varies with the distance as shown in the figure. If the experiment is performed with the above spring of half the length, the line OA will: (a) shift toward F-...

### Distance between coils on a massive spring

I'm trying to calculate the separation between coils on a massive spring with no weights attached under different conditions. I will present my solution to the problem in the case of a uniform ...

### Relation of spring constant with mean radius of spring

My teacher says that spring constant depends on its radius. I tried to understand it, and checked many questions in this site and other sites. All of them say that spring constant depends on number of ...
