Increasing the mass attached to a spring will decrease the angular frequency of its vibrations.

Question

Increasing the mass attached to a spring will decrease the angular frequency of its vibrations.

True or False?

Answer

Answer:

decreases

Explanation:

The angular frequency of the mass is given by

where, k is the spring constant and m be the mass of the body which is doing oscillations.

if the mass of the body increases, so the value of angular frequency decreases, as the angular frequency is inversely proportional to the square root of the mass of the body.
