The dictionary defines resonance as “the state of a system in which an abnormally large vibration is produced in response to an external stimulus occurring when the frequency of the stimulus is the same or nearly the same as the natural vibration frequency of the system.”. A phenomenon in which an external force or a vibrating system forces another system around it to vibrate with greater amplitude at a specified frequency of operation.
Definition of resonance. 1 a : the quality or state of being resonant. b (1) : a vibration of large amplitude in a mechanical or electrical system caused by a relatively small periodic stimulus of the same or nearly the same period as the natural vibration period of the system.
Resonance describes the phenomenon of increased amplitude that occurs when the frequency of a periodically applied force is equal or close to a natural frequency of the system on which it acts. When an oscillating force is applied at a resonant frequency of a dynamic system the system will oscillate at a higher amplitude than when the same force is applied at other non-resonant frequencies. Frequencies at which the response amplitude is a relative maximum are also known as resonant frequencies
This is known as resonance – when one object vibrating at the same natural frequency of a second object forces that second object into vibrational motion. The word resonance comes from Latin and means to “resound” – to sound out together with a loud sound. Resonance …
