Unformatted text preview: Morby, Grant Homework 31 Due: Apr 21 2006, noon Inst: Drummond 1 This print-out should have 14 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10 points Consider the oscillation of a mass-spring system, where x = A cos( t + ) . At the time t = 0, the mass m is at x = 0 (the equilibrium point) and it is moving with a positive velocity v . k m v x = 0 x Find the phase angle . (Hint: Consider x as the projection of a counterclockwise uniform circular motion.) 1. = 2 2. = 1 2 3. = 5 4 4. = 3 4 5. = 6. = 0 7. = 7 4 8. = 3 2 correct 9. = 1 4 Explanation: Basic Concepts: x = A cos ( t + ) = r m k A B C D E F G H x The SHM can be represented by the x- projection of a uniform circular motion: x = A cos ( t + ) . At t = 0 ,x = 0. From inspection, it should be either C or G . At C , v < 0; while at G , v > 0. So G is the correct choice, or = 3 2 . 002 (part 2 of 3) 10 points Let the mass be m = 6 . 55 kg, spring constant k = 964 N / m and the initial velocity v = 1 . 02 m / s. Find the amplitude A . Correct answer: 0 . 084078 m. Explanation: v = dx dt =- A sin( t + ) So the velocity amplitude or the maximum speed is v max = A ; i.e. , v = A, so A = v = v r m k = (1 . 02 m / s) s (6 . 55 kg) (964 N / m) = 0 . 084078 m . 003 (part 3 of 3) 10 points Find the total energy of oscillation at t = T 8 ; i.e. , at one-eighth of the period. Morby, Grant Homework 31 Due: Apr 21 2006, noon Inst: Drummond 2 (Hint: Consider what happens to the total energy during oscillatory motion.) 1. E = 1 4 mv 2 2. E = 5 2 mv 2 3. E = mv 2 4. E = 3 4 mv 2 5. E = 1 2 mv 2 correct 6. E = 3 2 mv 2 7. E = 2 m v 2 8. E = 1 2 2 m v 2 Explanation: Since the spring force is a conservative force the total energy is conserved. One may equate the energy at t = 0 where x = 0. So E = K + U = K max = 1 2 mv 2 . 004 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Given: g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 . When an unknown weight W was sus- pended from a spring with an unknown force constant k it reached its equilibrium position and the spring was stretched by 12 . 7 cm be- cause of the weight W ....
