Unformatted text preview: PHYS 310: Exam2 October 19, 2011 Name: Problem 1 (30 points). The initial conditions of a two-dimensional isotropic oscillator are as follows: A y x A y A x t ϖ 3 , , 4 , , = = = = = where ϖ is the angular frequency. (a) (20 points) Find x and y as functions of t (b) (5 points) Show that the motion takes place entirely within the rectangle of dimensions 2A and 10A. (5 points) Make a sketch of the path.
