The video demonstrates the development of a rough model of the Kindle 3's rear cover, the extraction of the cover's 1st Natural Frequency, and compares the result to a similar sized plate to serve as a verification. The model is extremely simplified, and I hope to have a revised model once I acquire more information regarding the cover.

A comparison of the model and rear cover is provided at 04:49

***Details of the model***

Bayblend T65 XF material was used

Size of cover is 190 mm x 123mm x .004mm with a material thickness of .002mm

The cover is simply supported on all four edges
