The mass and spring system is a useful model for a periodic system. 13-1 Simple Harmonic Motion We assume that the surface is frictionless. There is a point where the spring is neither stretched nor compressed; this is the equilibrium position. We measure displacement from that point ( x = 0 on the previous figure). The force exerted by the spring depends on the displacement: 13-1 Simple Harmonic Motion The minus sign on the force indicates that it is a restoring force it is directed to restore the mass to its equilibrium position. k is the spring constant The force is not constant, so the acceleration is not constant either 13-1 Simple Harmonic Motion Displacement is measured from the equilibrium point Amplitude is the maximum displacement A cycle is a full back-and-forth motion; this figure shows half a cycle Period is the time required to complete one cycle Frequency is the number of cycles completed per second 13-1 Simple Harmonic Motion f the spring is hung ertically, the only change s in the equilibrium osition, which is at the oint where the spring orce equals the ravitational force. 13-1 Simple Harmonic Motion...
