Unformatted text preview: Important formulae for problem solving in oscillations. The displacement of a simple harmonic motion: y = A sin ( ϖ t + δ ) Velocity of a simple harmonic motion: v = A ϖ cos ( ϖ t + δ ) Acceleration of a simple harmonic motion: a = - A ϖ 2 sin ( ϖ t + δ ) = - ϖ 2 y y max = A (amplitude) v max = A ϖ a max = A ϖ 2 k m ϖ = 2 T π ϖ = = 2 π f 1 f T = 2 m T k π = F = - kx 1 The potential energy of a stretched spring: U = ½ kx 2 The total energy of an oscillating object: E = ½ kA 2 The kinetic energy of an oscillating mass: K = ½ mv 2 The maximum kinetic energy occurs at the equilibrium position: K max = ½ mv max 2 = ½ kA 2 max k v A A m ϖ = = 2 A 2.0 kg object is attached to a horizontal spring of force constant k = 5 kN.m-1 . The spring is stretched 10 cm from the equilibrium position and released. Find (a) the period, (b) the frequency, and (c) the amplitude of the motion. (d) What is its maximum speed? (e) What is its maximum acceleration? When does the object first reach the equilibrium position?
