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 71.5-kg diver on the board?

Step 1

Given:

Frequency of diving board = 4.7 Hz

Mass of diving board = 8.5 kg

Step 2

Frequency of diving board can be given as:

Step 3

New mass = (71.5 + 8.5) = 80 kg

Spring constant = 7412....
