2 RG, Physi cs & Ast r onomy Physi cs 124, Spr i ng 2010 Lecture 4 Summary Today: periodic motion / oscillations / waves F 1 on 2 =− G m 1 m 2 | r 12 | 2 r 12 = m 1 g Kepler's 1 st law : elliptical orbits with the sun at one focus. Kepler's 2 nd law : orbit sweeps out equal areas in equal times Kepler's 3 rd law : T 2 a 3 = constant = 4 2 Gm sun Gravitational field g = F g m =− GM r 2 r Potential energy U g =− G m 1 m 2 r Escape speed v esc = 2Gm e r
3 RG, Physi cs & Ast r onomy Physi cs 124, Spr i ng 2010 Basics Repeating motion, Ideally constant period Ideally undamped – no energy lost (for most of class) Examples: waves in ocean strings in piano light waves molecular vibration mass on a spring Pendulum x-component of circular motion chainfall Computer demo... There are many types of repeating motion

### 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
