SE 101C/ MAE 130C MECHANICS III: VIBRATIONS Dr. Van Den Einde Spring 2010 Page 1 HOMEWORK 1 Due: 4/14/10 1. A body weighing 25 lb is suspended from a spring of constant k = 160 lb/ft (see Figure 1). At time t = 0, it has a downward velocity of 2 ft/sec as it passes through the position of static equilibrium. Determine: a. The static spring deflection δ st b. The natural frequency of the system in both rad/sec ( ω n ) and cycles/sec (f n ) c. The system period T d. The displacement x as a function of time, where x is measured from the position of static equilibrium e. The maximum velocity v max attained by the mass f. The maximum acceleration a max attained by the mass. 2. Rao 1.9 3. Derive the equivalent spring constant for the system in Figure 2. 4. Rao 1.35 5. Given two complex numbers z 1 = (2+2i) and z 2 = (4-3i) a. Add z
