At the maximum displacement points, (+ x max and- x max ), the velocity is zero and the kinetic energy is zero. From a different perspective, in simple har- monic motion of an object on the end of a spring, the total energy is conserved. At the maximum displacement x max , the kinetic en- ergy is 0, so, E = U ( x max ) = U max . U + K = E = U max K ( x ) = U max- U ( x ) . Thus, K ( x ) looks like an upsidedown U ( x ). 002 (part 1 of 2) 10 points A hoop has a radius R and mass m . It is pivoted at A , a point on the circumference of the hoop. Denote the moment of inertia about the center by I and about the pivot point A by I A . Overton, Mays Homework 32 Due: Apr 23 2005, 4:00 am Inst: Turner 2 The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . A O O' The equation of motion about A in the small angle approximation (sin ) is given by 1. I A d 2 dt 2 = mg R . 2. I d 2 dt 2 = mg R . 3. I d 2 dt 2 =- 2 mg R . 4. I A d 2 dt 2 = 2 mg R . 5. I A d 2 dt 2 =- 1 2 mg R . 6. I d 2 dt 2 = 2 mg R . 7. I d 2 dt 2 =- 1 2 mg R . 8. I A d 2 dt 2 =- mg R . correct 9. I d 2 dt 2 =- mg R . 10. I A d 2 dt 2 =- 2 mg R . Explanation: The torque on the hoop is provided by grav- ity, and its magnitude is given by = mg R sin mg R , where we used the small angle approximation in the last step. Note: The distance from the pivot A to the center of mass of the hoop is R ....
