Unformatted text preview: = 2 E / k = max displacement b = 2 E / m = max speed b / a = k / m =ϖ 2) How does the phase space diagram change, if the phase “δ” in x(t)=Acos(ωtδ) changes? 5 Phase paths A and B both describe a harmonic oscillator with the same mass m. Which path describes the system with a bigger spring constant k? C) both are the same D) Not enough info/??? 6 For the phase space trajectory of a simple harmonic oscillator, give a physical interpretation of the fact that: the trajectory crosses the horizontal (x) axis at right angles.  the trajectory crosses the vertical (v) axes at right angles. x v...
