Unformatted text preview: honea (cth632) H14Oscillations Avram (1955) 1 This print-out should have 11 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points The displacement in simple harmonic motion is a maximum when the 1. linear momentum is a maximum. 2. kinetic energy is a maximum. 3. acceleration is zero. 4. velocity is zero. 5. velocity is a maximum. 002 10.0 points A particle oscillates up and down in simple harmonic motion. Its height y as a function of time t is shown in the diagram. 1 2 3 4 5 5 5 y (cm) t (s) At what time t in the period shown does the particle achieve its maximum positive ac- celeration? 1. t = 3 s 2. t = 4 s 3. t = 1 s 4. t = 2 s 5. None of these; the acceleration is con- stant. 003 10.0 points A simple harmonic oscillator has amplitude . 44 m and period 3 . 9 sec. What is the maximum acceleration?...
