Two identical tuning forks vibrate at 256 Hz. One of them is then loaded with a drop of wax, after which 6 beats/s are heard. The period of the loaded tuning fork is?
So, as the uploaded pictures shows, I did solve the problem, but I'm not sure why the f1 frequency is bigger than f2. I mean how...
Well honestly I'm completely lost, and at this point totally desperate. I'm really not sure what to do. This is how I done it, but I'm not even sure it's the right way to go
Well my biggest problem is I get to a point where I have T= √4Π ⋅ (r/2)3 / G ⋅ Ms
and then it seems I should divide T with two, which I don't understand why. Also in this step i don't understand why it's r/2 and not r
