Problem 46PE

 Problem 46PE

Engineering Application: A suspension bridge oscillates with an effective force constant of 1.00×108 N/m . (a) How much energy is needed to make it oscillate with an amplitude of 0.100 m? (b) If soldiers march across the bridge with a cadence equal to the bridge’s natural frequency and impart 1.00 × 104 J of energy each second, how long does it take for the bridge’s oscillations to go from 0.100 m to 0.500 m amplitude?
