We developed a method for analyzing the frequency of a quartz-crystal tuning fork using a plate spring approximation. In order to calculate the actual frequency of the tuning fork, we approximated the right half of the tuning fork to an L-shaped bar, which two bars acting as the base and the arm undergo bending vibration, and a torsion spring at the joint of beams A corresponding to the base and B corresponding to the arm combined to form. Furthermore, we approximated the torsion spring with… Expand
