Unformatted text preview: Chapter 15 Oscillations In this chapter we will cover the following topics: Simple harmonic oscillator: Displacement, velocity, acceleration, kinetic and potential energy. Examples of simple harmonic oscillators: spring-mass system, simple pendulum, physical pendulum, torsion pendulum Damped harmonic oscillator Forced oscillations/Resonance (15-1) In fig.a we show snapshots of a simple oscillating system. Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM) The motion is periodic, i.e. it repeats in time. The time needed to complete one repetition is the The number of repetitions per u (symb nit t ol , unit ime is th s s).

Object A is attached to ideal spring A and is moving in simple harmonic motion. Object B is attached to ideal spring B and is moving in simple harmonic motion. The period and the amplitude of object B are both two times the corresponding values for object A. How do the maximum speeds of the two objects compare? a) The maximum speed of A is one fourth that of object B. b) The maximum speed of A is one half that of object B. c) The maximum speed of A is the same as that of object B. d) The maximum speed of A is two times that of object B. e) The maximum speed of A is four times that of object B. 15.2.1.
