Unformatted text preview: t should be traveling upwards when it first passes through it. To check this answer, we graph one cycle of x(t). Since our applied domain in this situation π is t ≥ 0, and the period of x(t) is T = 2π = 22 = π , we graph x(t) over the interval [0, π ]. ω Remembering that x(t) > 0 means the object is below the equilibrium position and x(t) < 0 means the object is above the equilibrium position, the fact our graph is crossing through the t-axis from positive x to negative x at t = π confirms our answer. 4 2. The only difference between this problem and the previous problem is that we now release the object with an upward velocity of 8 ft . We still have ω = 2 and x0 = 3, but now s we have v0 = −8, the negative indicating the velocity is directed upwards. Here, we get 2 A = x2 + v0 = 32 + (−4)2 = 5. From A sin(φ) = x0 , we get 5 sin(φ) = 3 which gives 0 ω 3 sin(φ) = 5 . From Aω cos(φ) = v0 , we get 10 cos(φ) = −8, or cos(φ) = − 4 . This means 5 that φ is a Quadrant II angle which we can describe in terms of either arcs...
