Designed to show the vibration of an object when repeated impulses are applied, this demonstrator consists of two weights of different natural frequencies, two cams driven by a 6V motor with speed control, and four springs. The speed control is used to adjust the frequency of applied force for resonance, so a greater degree of variance is possible.
