PHYSICS 002C Lecture 04 April 06, 2009 Serway and Jewett Chapter 13 – Mechanical Waves Review - Chap 12.3 - Energy in simple harmonic motion Solved problem from last lecture. Review Q: A pendulum consists of a long wire attached to the ceiling of the lecture hall and a 5 kg weight of negligible diameter attached to the other end of the wire with its center of mass 5 m from the point of attachment of to the ceiling. At rest, the bottom of the weight is only a mm above the floor. I pull the weight back (with the wire remaining taught) until its height is 1 m from the floor. An assistant positions another weight of equal mass just off the floor where the hanging weight was at equilibrium. This second weight is made of sticky material so that when I let go of the first weight, it swings down and smacks into the sticky weight, carrying it along past the equilibrium position. How high off the floor does the combined center of mass rise? a) 0.5 m; b) 0.6 m; c) 0.15 m; d) 0.25 m; e) 0.3 m Review - Chap 12.6 - Damped and forced oscillations

    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.
