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:
