Topic: Period (physics)


  
  The Physics Classroom
Frequency is the cycles/second; period is the seconds/cycle.
Mathematically, the period is the reciprocal of the frequency and vice versa.
As the frequency of a wave increases, the period of the wave ___________.

 Periodicity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In chemistry, a table which classifies elements by means of periodicity is the periodic table.
In physics, period is the number of cycles as a result of time (time/cycle).
When used in the periodic table, periodicity is the way in which properties of elements are repeated, depending on their location in the periodic table.

 Period - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In physics, a period is an interval of time between the recurrence of phases in a vibration, etc. This general sense applies to many of the above.
Period (Business) the word 'Period' on a pay slip states how much money has been taxed from that "period" or session of pay (Normally the month).
Period is also the name of the final novel in Dennis Cooper's George Miles Cycle.

 REVIEW OF CANADIAN ACADEMIC PHYSICS
Of those who use skills and/or modes of thought provided by their physics background, the skills used may be some of those acquired directly in the pursuit of the research goals of their thesis project, such as advanced computer related skills, knowledge of methods of statistical analysis of data or equipment design skills.
Respondents were asked to rate the "usefulness of your physics education in obtaining your job" and the "usefulness of your physics education in performing your job" on a scale from marginal (1) to absolutely critical.
If 40% of physics graduates find themselves using their physics background, but not in a physics related job environment, perhaps more attention should be given in their education to the application of the reasoning processes of physics to non-physics applications.

 Physics 1st Period
This course is a general college prep introduction to physics.
Its emphasis is about equally divided between developing a conceptual understanding of the major topics of classical physics and developing problem solving skills in those topic areas.
Algebra and trigonometry will be used extensively, and certain topics in elementary functions and pre-calculus will be introduced where appropriate, though their mastery is not required for a successful achievement in the course.

 SparkNotes: SAT Physics: Frequency and Period
These terms are also relevant to rotational motion, and SAT II Physics has been known to test the relation between angular velocity and angular frequency and period.
In general, a rotating particle has an instantaneous velocity that is tangent to the circle described by its rotation and an instantaneous acceleration that points toward the center of the circle.
On SAT II Physics, you may be called upon to determine a particle’s linear velocity or acceleration given its angular velocity or acceleration, or vice versa.

 Frequency and Period of a Wave
The period of a typical class at a high school might be 55 minutes; every 55 minutes a class cycle begins (50 minutes for class and 5 minutes for passing time means that a class begins every 55 minutes).
That doesn't mean he spends 24 hours on the stool, it merely means that it takes 24 hours before he must return to the stools to repeat the daily cycle.
(Of course, this assumes that a trip to the stools is a periodic event for that teacher.)

 Physics Demonstrations - Motion
Motion, more properly called "mechanics," is the oldest branch of physics, having been put on a firm quantitative basis by Isaac Newton (1642-1727) who by the age of 24 had also developed calculus, which subsequently became an indispensable tool of science.
The period does not depend on the mass of the pendulum or on the amplitude of the motion, at least so long as the amplitude is sufficiently small.
Although the laws of classical physics are deterministic, where there are many particles interacting with one another such as in a gas at atmospheric density, the number of equations is very large, and it is a practical impossibility to solve them all.

The Surface Physics course will offer a general introduction to the structural, electronic and vibrational properties of atoms and molecules at surfaces and interfaces from a mainly experimental viewpoint.
The course is based on an introductory course in nuclear physics and is intended to give a deeper insight in the physics of the atomic nucleus and in addition a brief introduction to particle physics.
The theory is applied to several fields of physics, including solid state physics, atomic physics, nuclear physics, astro physics and combustion physics.

 orbital period vs. diameter
The orbital period vs. orbital radius (s-m axis) scales as T^2/R^3, (Kepler's law).
So the period T = sq.rt.(1.7)^3 = 2.25, meaning its orbital period is 2.25 times that of Pluto.
Since Pluto's orbital period is 248 yrs, then the orbital period of UB313 is about 558 yrs.

Each complete period is called a cycle and the number of cycles per unit time is the frequency.
T is the period or simply the time taken to complete a single cycle.
In layman's terms, although the PD and current have the same period, they do not reach their maximum or minimum at the same time and are out of `sync'.

 The Sunspot Cycle
Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century.
Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented.
This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the "Little Ice Age" when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes.

 Time Period Question
Because, if the time period is LESS, the frequency is MORE, hence the system would suffer more oscillations, right?So to make the building suffer no oscillations/ less oscillations the time period should be LARGE.
You can verify this yourself by simply looking at the expression for a period of oscillation for a simple harmonic oscillator.
where T is the period, k is the spring constant (a measure of stiffness of the spring), and m is the oscillating mass.
