Frequency:

$\overline{){\mathbf{f}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{T}}}$

The time period of the mass of a spring system is expressed as:

$\overline{){\mathbf{T}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{\pi }}\sqrt{\frac{\mathbf{m}}{\mathbf{k}}}}$

Part A

TA = 4 s

fA = 1/4 = 0.25 Hz

The frequency of system A is 0.25 Hz.
