A spring has a force constant k and mass m is suspended from it. The spring is cut in half and the same mass is suspended from one of the halves. If the frequency of oscillation in the first case is alpha , then the frequency in the second case will be (1) alpha/2 (2)alpha x root 2 (3) alpha (4) 2alpha

Dear Student,

When the spring is cut into half, the spring constant will get doubled. Use this to get the answer.
