3 Good Vibes: Introduction to Oscillations Description: Several conceptual and qualitative questions related to main characteristics of simple harmonic motion: amplitude, displacement, period, frequency, angular frequency, etc. Both graphs and equations are used. Learning Goal: To learn the basic terminology and relationships among the main characteristics of simple harmonic motion. Motion that repeats itself over and over is called periodic motion. There are many examples of periodic motion: the earth revolving around the sun, an elastic ball bouncing up and down, or a block attached to a spring oscillating back and forth. The last example differs from the first two, in that it represents a special kind of periodic motion called simple harmonic motion. The conditions that lead to simple harmonic motion are as follows: There must be a position of stable equilibrium. There must be a restoring force acting on the oscillating object. The direction of this force must always point toward the equilibrium, and its magnitude must be directly proportional to the magnitude of the object's displacement from its equilibrium position. Mathematically, the restoring force is given by, where is the displacement from equilibrium and is a constant that depends on the properties of the oscillating system. The resistive forces in the system must be reasonably small. In this problem, we will introduce some of the basic quantities that describe oscillations and the relationships among them. Consider a block of mass attached to a spring with force constant, as shown in the figure. The spring can be either stretched or compressed. The block slides on a frictionless horizontal surface, as

4 shown. When the spring is relaxed, the block is located at. If the block is pulled to the right a distance and then released, will be the amplitude of the resulting oscillations. Assume that the mechanical energy of the block-spring system remains unchanged in the subsequent motion of the block. After the block is released from, it will remain at rest. move to the left until it reaches equilibrium and stop there. move to the left until it reaches and stop there. move to the left until it reaches and then begin to move to the right. As the block begins its motion to the left, it accelerates. Although the restoring force decreases as the block approaches equilibrium, it still pulls the block to the left, so by the time the equilibrium position is reached, the block has gained some speed. It will, therefore, pass the equilibrium position and keep moving, compressing the spring. The spring will now be pushing the block to the right, and the block will slow down, temporarily coming to rest at. After is reached, the block will begin its motion to the right, pushed by the spring. The block will pass the equilibrium position and continue until it reaches, completing one cycle of motion. The motion will then repeat; if, as we've assumed, there is no friction, the motion will repeat indefinitely. The time it takes the block to complete one cycle is called the period. Usually, the period is denoted and is measured in seconds. The frequency, denoted, is the number of cycles that are completed per unit of time: Part B. In SI units, is measured in inverse seconds, or hertz ( ). If the period is doubled, the frequency is unchanged. doubled. halved.

5 Part C An oscillating object takes 0.10 to complete one cycle; that is, its period is What is its frequency? Express your answer in hertz. Part D If the frequency is 40, what is the period? Express your answer in seconds. The following questions refer to the figure oscillations of the block on the spring. that graphically depicts the Note that the vertical axis represents the x coordinate of the oscillating object, and the horizontal axis represents time. Part E Which points on the x axis are located a distance R only Q only both R and Q from the equilibrium position? Part F Suppose that the period is. Which of the following points on the t axis are

6 separated by the time interval? K and L K and M K and P L and N M and P K and P are separated by phase interval of 2π, or the block gets back to the same point. Now assume that the x coordinate of point R is 0.12 is Part G and the t coordinate of point K What is the period? Hint G.1 How to approach the problem In moving from the point covered? Call that fraction. Then you can set fraction will give the period. Express your answer in seconds. Part H to the point K, what fraction of a full wavelength is. Dividing by the How much time does the block take to travel from the point of maximum displacement to the opposite point of maximum displacement? Express your answer in seconds. The block travels only half the period. Part I What distance does the object cover during one period of oscillation? Express your answer in meters. 4 times of the amplitude. Part J What distance does the object cover between the moments labeled K and N on the graph?

7 Express your answer in meters. 3 times of the amplitude. Energy of a Spring Description: Short quantitative problem relating the total, potential, and kinetic energies of a mass that is attached to a spring and undergoing simple harmonic motion. This problem is based on Young/Geller Quantitative Analysis 11.1 An object of mass attached to a spring of force constant oscillates with simple harmonic motion. The maximum displacement from equilibrium is mechanical energy of the system is. and the total What is the system's potential energy when its kinetic energy is equal to? Hint A.1 How to approach the problem Since the sum of kinetic and potential energies of the system is equal to the system's total energy, if you know the fraction of total energy corresponding to kinetic energy you can calculate how much energy is potential energy. Moreover, using conservation of energy you can calculate the system's total energy in terms of the given quantities and. At this point you simply need to combine those results to find the potential energy of the system in terms of and..2 Find the fraction of total energy that is potential energy When the kinetic energy of the system is equal to energy is potential energy? Hint A.2.a Conservation of mechanical energy, what fraction of the total In a system where no forces other than gravitational and elastic forces do work, the sum of kinetic energy and potential energy is conserved. That is, the total energy of the system, given by, is constant. Express your answer numerically..3 Find the total energy of the system What is the total mechanical energy of the system,? Hint A.3.a How to approach the problem

8 If you apply conservation of energy to the system when the object reaches its maximum displacement, you can calculate the system's total energy in terms of the given quantities and. In fact, when the object is at its maximum displacement from equilibrium, its speed is momentarily zero and so is its kinetic energy. It follows that the system's energy at this point is entirely potential, that is,, where is the spring's elastic potential energy. Hint A.3.b Elastic potential energy The elastic potential energy a distance is given by of a spring that has been compressed or stretched by where is the force constant of the spring. Express your answer in terms of some or all of the variables,, and., Part B What is the object's velocity when its potential energy is Hint B.1 How to approach the problem You can calculate the object's velocity using energy considerations. Calculate the fraction of the system's total energy that is kinetic energy and then find the object's velocity from the definition of kinetic energy. To simplify your expression write the total energy in terms of and. Alternatively, you could directly use the formula for the object's velocity in terms of the variables,,, and displacement derived from energy considerations. The only unknown quantity in such a formula would be the object's displacement, which can be calculated from the system's potential energy.?

9 Part B.2 Find the kinetic energy If the system's potential energy is, what is the system's kinetic energy? Hint B.2.a Conservation of mechanical energy In a system where no forces other than gravitational and elastic forces do work, the sum of kinetic energy and potential energy is conserved. That is, the total energy of the system, given by, is constant. Hint B.2.b Total energy of the system The total energy of a system consisting of an object attached to a horizontal spring of force constant is given by, where is the maximum displacement of the object from its equilibrium position. Now use your result and the definition of kinetic energy as to find the object's speed. Hint B.3 Formula for the velocity in terms of position The velocity of an object of mass undergoing simple harmonic motion is given by, where is the force constant of the system, is the object's position, and maximum displacement. Part B.4 Find the object's position is When the system's potential energy is from its equilibrium position?, what is the displacement of the object

10 Hint B.4.a Elastic potential energy The elastic potential energy a distance is given by of a spring that has been compressed or stretched by, where is the force constant of the spring. Hint B.4.b Total energy of the system The total energy of a system consisting of an object attached to a horizontal spring of force constant is given by, where is the maximum displacement of the object from its equilibrium position.
