Oscillations Goals for this Lecture: Displacement, velocity and acceleration of a simple harmonic oscillator Energy of a simple harmonic oscillator Examples of simple harmonic oscillators: spring- mass system, simple pendulum, physical pendulum, torsion pendulum Damped harmonic oscillator Forced oscillations/Resonance
Oscillations Oscillations are a periodic, repetitive motion (of any physical variable) Examples: Mechanical oscillations : Heart beats, sound waves, earthquakes, swing set, rocking chair ... Other oscillations : Electro-magnetic, temperature stock market prices, # of students in this room, ... time Variable # student in room vs time Heart beat EKG Dow Jones 1 day 1 s 1 year

Simple Harmonic Motion Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM) is a class of oscillations that is Periodic: repeats exactly with a period T (or a frequency f = 1/T) Described by a sinusoidal function: x(t) = x m cos( ! t + " ) time x(t) T -x m x m
Properties of SHM Properties: Period: T [s] x(t) = x(t+T) Frequency: f [Hz] = [s -1 ] f = 1/T

### 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.
