The sound from a mosquito is produced when it vibrates its wings at an average rate of 500 vibrations per second. What is the time period of the vibration?
Time Period given by the inverse of the frequency. Therefore,
Given: Total vibrations = 500 per second
Hence, the tome period of the vibration is 0.0002 seconds.
