A block is hung on a spring, and the frequency f of the oscillation of the system is measured. The block, a second identical block, and the spring are carried into space. The 2 blocks are attached to the ends of a spring, and the system is taken out into space on a space walk. The spring is extended, and the system is released to oscillate while floating in space. What is the frequency of oscillation for this system, in terms if f
I know the answer is sqrt(2)f . But how do we get this?
