OSCILLATIONS 1. At t = 0, the displacement x(0) of the block in a linear oscillator is -8.50 cm. The block s velocity v(0) then is -0.920 m/s, and its acceleration a(0) is +47.0 m/s 2 . a)What is the angular frequency? b)What are the phase constant ! and amplitude A?

2. An oscillator consists of a block attached to a spring (k = 400 N/m). At some time t, the position (measured from the system s equilibrium location), velocity, and acceleration of the block are x = 0.100 m, v = -13.6 m/s, and a = -123m/s 2 . Calculate a)the frequency of oscillation, b)the mass of the block, and c) the amplitude of the motion.
3. A block of mass M, at rest on a horizontal frictionless table, is attached to a rigid support by a spring of constant k. A bullet of mass m and velocity v strikes the block. The bullet is embedded in the block. Determine a)the speed of the block immediately after the collision and b) the amplitude of the resulting simple harmonic motion. FIGURE

### 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.
