2 Physics 1D03 Mass and Spring x m k dt x d a - = = 2 2 M x F = -kx ma kx F = - = Newton’s 2 nd Law: so This is a 2 nd order differential equation for the function x(t) . Recall that for SHM, a = -ω 2 x , identical except for the proportionality constant. So the motion of the mass will be SHM: x(t) = A cos ( ω t + φ ), and to make the equations for acceleration match, we require that m k = 2 , or m k = (and = 2 π f , etc .). Physics 1D03 Mass and Spring f (force parameter/inertia parameter) ½ The frequency is independent of amplitude . The same results hold for a mass on a vertical spring (forces are spring plus gravity), as long as the displacement is measured from the
