## About Ride Frequency Calculator (Formula)

The Ride Frequency Calculator is a tool used to calculate the frequency of the ride of a vehicle with passengers based on the mass of the vehicle and the spring rate of the vehicle. The ride frequency is the number of times the vehicle oscillates (bounces up and down) in one second.

The formula used in the Ride Frequency Calculator is

f=1/(2∗pi)∗SQRT(K/M)

Where f is the ride frequency (in Hz), K is the spring rate or spring constant (in N/m), and M is the mass of the vehicle with passengers (in kg).

The formula is based on the fact that the ride frequency of a vehicle with passengers is inversely proportional to the square root of the ratio of the spring rate to the mass. Therefore, if the spring rate of the vehicle is high, the ride frequency will be high, and if the mass of the vehicle is high, the ride frequency will be low.

By using the Ride Frequency Calculator, one can determine the ride frequency of their vehicle and make adjustments to the spring rate or mass of the vehicle to achieve a smoother or more stable ride. This can be particularly useful for those who are involved in motorsports or other activities that require a high-performance vehicle.
