L40 W 4/21/10 Physics 2010 4 A ball bounces up and down on a foor with perFectly elastic bounces, so that the ball bounces Forever. Is this an example oF simple harmonic motion? A) Yes The Force is constant, it’s not dependent on displacement.
L40 W 4/21/10 Physics 2010 5 Simple Harmonic Oscillator F = ma = kx (Hooke's Law) Qualitative Comments: restoring force is proportional to displacement force is not constant, so acceleration isn’t either: a = -(k/m)x “amplitude” A is the maximum displacement x max , occurs with v = 0 mass oscillates between x = A & x = -A maximum speed v max occurs
