Question

Suppose a diving board with no one on it bounces up and down in a simple harmonic motion with a frequency of 4.00 Hz. The board has an effective mass of 10.0 kg. What is the frequency (in Hz) of the simple harmonic motion of a 80.0 kg diver on the board?

Answer #1

frequency in SHM is given by:

f = (1/(2*pi))*sqrt (k/m)

Here k = spring constant for diving board

Since k remains constant, So frequency of diving board is inversely proportional to the square root of effective mass on board. So

f2/f1 = sqrt (m1/m2)

f2 = f1*sqrt (m1/m2)

m1 = mass of diving board = 10.0 kg

f1 = effective frequency of empty diving board = 4.00 Hz

m2 = mass of diving board when diver on board = 80.0 + 10.0 = 90.0 kg

So,

f2 = 4.00*sqrt (10.0/90.0)

**f2 = 1.33 Hz**

**Let me know if you've any query.**

Suppose a diving board with no one
on it bounces up and down in a simple harmonic motion with a
frequency of 4.7 Hz. The board has an effective mass of 8.5
kg.
What
is the frequency, in hertz, of the simple harmonic motion of a
79-kg diver on the board?

5. A diver on a diving board is undergoing simple harmonic
motion. Her mass is 57.5 kg and the period of her motion is 0.75 s.
The next driver is a male whose period of simple harmonic
oscillation is 1.09 s. What is his mass, in kilograms, if the mass
of the board is negligible?
M2=?

A diving board oscillates with simple harmonic motion of
frequency 3.85 Hz.
What is the maximum amplitude with which the end of the board can
vibrate in order that a pebble placed there not lose contact with
the board during the oscillation?

A swimmer bounces straight up from a diving board and falls feet
first into a pool. She starts with a velocity of 4.00 m/s, and her
takeoff point is 1.90 m above the pool. (a) How long are her feet
in the air? (b) What is her highest point above the board? (c)What
is her velocity when her feet hit the water?

A toddler with a mass of 15.6 kg bounces up and down in her
crib. The crib mattress behaves like a light spring with force
constant 745 N/m.
(a)The toddler bounces with at a frequency that allows her to
reach a maximum amplitude with minimum effort. What is this
frequency (in Hz)?
(b)The toddler now bounces high enough to lose contact with the
mattress once each cycle, like a trampoline. What is the minimum
amplitude of oscillation (in cm) required...

A 55-kg diver stands at the end of a
diving board located 10 m above the water level. The diving board
is held down at one end by an anchor bolt. The fulcrum is located
at 1.4 m from the bolt and the total length of the board is 3.9
m.
Draw a free body diagram showing the forces acting on the
diver.
Calculate the torque that she exerts on the board with respect
to the fulcrum. Neglect the mass...
