6 A particle oscillates in a one-dimensional potential. How many (which?) of the following properties guarantee simple harmonic motion? i) The period T is independent of the amplitude A ii) The potential U(x)~x2 iii) The force F=–kx (Hooke’s law) iv) The position is sinusoidal in time: x=Asin(wt+a) A) only 1 of these properties guarantees simple harmonic motion B) exactly 2 properties guarantee simple harmonic motion C) exactly 3 properties guarantee simple harmonic motion D) all (any one of these guarantees simple harmonic motion)

7 A mass on a spring has a small damping term added. When it passes through x=0, which is correct? A) The mass is instantaneously speeding up B) The mass is instantaneously slowing down C) The mass is at a maximum speed (and is thus neither speeding up nor slowing down D) The answer depends on which WAY it is passing through the origin.
