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
Energy in SHM What is the energy contained in a simple harmonic oscillator? Potential energy: U spring = 1/2kx 2 U(t) = 1/2kx m 2 cos 2 ( ! t+ " ) Kinetic Energy: K mass = 1/2 mv 2 K(t) = 1/2 m ! 2 x m 2 sin 2 ( ! t + " ) = 1/2 k x m 2 sin 2 ( ! t + " ) Total Mechanical Energy: E tot (t) = U(t) + K(t) = 1/2 k x m 2 [cos 2 ( ! t + " ) + sin 2 ( ! t + " )] E tot (t) = 1/2 k x m 2 = 1/2 m ! 2 x m 2 = constant

Angular SHM A torsion pendulum is an oscillating system similar to a spring, except that an object of rotational inertia I rotates/twists around a wire which exerts a restoring torque: # = - \$% ( \$ is the torsion constant)
