  1. 4-055-S-ShatterWineGlass

    20 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Jue Wang

    This module takes students through real life scenarios to examine resonance and its destructive power using differential equation models. What is resonance? How does it happen? Why is it important? Three cases are presented: shattering a wine glass, collapse of a suspension bridge, and crash of...
