Our representation of the physical world. Hooke balance wheel Behind these notions are the two postulates: of time and space Chap 12.1,2 Motion of a particle on a spring: Hooke’s law: kx F s - = DEMO: Spring with weights. Q: Quadrupling the mass: a) doubles the frequency, b) doubles the period, c) halves the period, d) quadruples the amplitude; e) breaks the spring. Q: Why is Hooke’s law true for small displacements? a) atoms move without friction, b) atomic forces are smooth, c) everything is linear, d) Newton’s law of universal cavitation; e) Hooke used a microscope. Combine Hooke’s law and Newton’s 2 nd law to get x dt x d 2 2 2 / ϖ - = , where m k / 2 = ϖ Solution: ) cos( φ ϖ + = t A x velocity: ) sin( / φ ϖ ϖ + - = = t A dt dx v The Framework

### What students are saying

• 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.
