## Answers ( )

Answer: Period = 0.2 seconds; frequency = 5Hz

Explanation:

Number of oscillations = 50

Time required = 10 seconds

Period (T) = ?

Frequency of the oscillations (F) = ?

A) Recall that frequency is the number of oscillations that the mass spring system completes in one second.

i.e Frequency = (Number of oscillations / time taken)

F = 50/10 = 5Hz

B) Period, T is inversely proportional to frequency. i.e Period = 1/Frequency

T = 1/5Hz

T = 0.2 seconds

Thus, the the period and frequency of the oscillations are 0.2 seconds and 5Hz respectively.
