Worksheet P: Oscillations. 1. You are baby-sitting little Nicole who plays with a toy of mass m = 0.200 kg that hangs at the end of a vertical spring of constant k = 9.80 N/m. The system is initially at rest and in equilibrium. a. To make the toy oscillate up and down, Nicole can either pull down the toy and release it or… move her hand up and down with brisk, periodic motions. How often would she have to pull up? The maximum effect will be obtained if the period of the applied force (hand’s motion) matches the natural frequency of the system, so 1 9.80 N/m 7.0 s 0.200 kg k m ω = = = b. Once the toy is oscillating 10.0 cm above and below the equilibrium position, she stops pulling and lets the system oscillate freely in what can be assumed to be a simple harmonic motion. What is the maximum speed of the toy? max 1 max 9.8 N/m with 10 cm and 7.0 s . 0.20 kg Thus, 70 cm/s v A k A m v ω ω = = = = = = c. You get a stopwatch and set it to zero when the toy is at the equilibrium position and moving upward. Write the functions that describe the position and velocity of

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
