A block of mass 2 kg is suspended from the pair of springs, as shown. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s . 1044 N / m 5684 N / m 2 kg When the block is in equilibrium, each spring is stretched an additional Δ x . Then the block oscillates with an amplitude of 21 m, and it passes through its equilibrium point with a speed of 441 m / s. What is the angular velocity of this system? 1. ω = 15 rad / s 2. ω = 11 rad / s 3. ω = 2 rad / s 4. ω = 18 rad / s 5. ω = 6 rad / s 6. ω = 10 rad / s 7. ω = 12 rad / s 8. ω = 21 rad / s correct 9. ω = 17 rad / s 10. ω = 13 rad / s Explanation: Let m = 2 kg , A = 21 m , v = 441 m / s , k 1 = 1044 N / m , and k 2 = 5684 N / m . Basic Concepts: Hooke’s law F = k x = ma = d 2 x dt 2 d 2 x dt 2 + k m x = 0 , (1) whose integral form has a sine function x ( t ) = A sin( ω t + δ ) , (2) v ( t ) ≡ dx dt v ( t ) = ω A cos( ω t + δ ) , and (3) a ( t ) ≡ dv dt a ( t ) = ω 2 A sin( ω t + δ ) , where (4) ω = radicalbigg k m . (5) The angular velocity ω is the square root of the coefficient of x in Eq. 1. The frequency of oscillation f versus angu lar frequency ω is f ≡ ω 2 π . (6) k 1 k 2 m Consider the forces from a spring’s point of view. The oscillating mass exerts the same force, F (at some instant in time) on the springs k 1 and k 2 , F = k 1 x 1 ⇒ x 1 = F k 1 F = k 2 x 2 ⇒ x 2 = F k 2 . oldhomewk 31 – VALENCIA, DANIEL – Due: Apr 28 2008, 4:00 am 2 Now consider the effective spring constant, k series , where x = x 1 + x 2 , therefore k series = F x = F x 1 + x 2 = F F k 1 + F k 2 = 1 1 k 1 + 1 k 2 = k 1 k 2 k 1 + k 2 . (7) = (1044 N / m) (5684 N / m) (1044 N / m) + (5684 N / m) = 882 N / m .
