|Description||These are just the clicker questions that will go with the homework; they seem worth sharing. Learning Goals: Students will be able to: •Identify/explain the variables that affect the natural frequency of a mass-spring system. •Explain the distinction between transient and steady-state behavior in a driven system. •Identify which variables affect the duration of the transient behavior. •Recognize the phase relationship between the driving frequency and the natural frequency, especially how the phase is different above and below resonance. •Give examples the application of real-world systems to which the understanding of resonance should be applied and explain why.|
