Applications of Simple Harmonic Motion

Circular & Harmonic Motion

Damped Harmonic Motion

Driven Oscillations & Resonance

Dancers from the Bandaloop Project perform on vertical surfaces, executing graceful slow-motion jumps.

What determines the duration of these jumps?

Wilberforce Pendulum

pendulum motion: rope length & g

Disturbing a system from equilibrium results in oscillatory motion.

Absent friction, oscillation continues forever.

Examples of oscillatory motion:

Microwave oven: Heats food by oscillating H2O molecules in it.

CO2 molecules in atmosphere absorb heat by vibrating global warming.

Watch keeps time thru oscillation ( pendulum, spring-wheel, quartz crystal, …)

Earth quake induces vibrations collapse of buildings & bridges .

Oscillation

Characteristics of oscillatory motion:

- Amplitude A = max displacement from equilibrium.
- PeriodT = time for the motion to repeat itself.
- Frequencyf = # of oscillations per unit time.

same period T

same amplitude A

[ f ] = hertz (Hz) = 1 cycle / s

A, T, f do not specify an oscillation completely.

Oscillation

An oscillating ruler completes 28 cycles in 10 s & moves a total distance of 8.0 cm.

What are the amplitude, period, & frequency of this oscillatory motion?

Amplitude = 8.0 cm / 2 = 4.0 cm.

Oscillation

|x| = max at v = 0

|v| = max at a = 0

Two identical mass-springs are displaced different amounts from equilibrium & then released at different times.

Of the amplitudes, frequencies, periods, & phases of the subsequent motions, which are the same for both systems & which are different?

Same: frequencies, periods

Different:

phases ( different release time )

Tuned Mass Damper

The tuned mass damper in NY’s Citicorp Tower consists of a 373-Mg (vs 101’s 3500 Mg) concrete block that completes one cycle of oscillation in 6.80 s.

The oscillation amplitude in a high wind is 110 cm.

Determine the spring constant & the maximum speed & acceleration of the block.

Simple pendulum (point mass m):

Tarzan stands on a branch as a leopard threatens.

Jane is on a nearby branch of the same height, holding a 25-m-long vine attached to a point midway between her & Tarzan.

She grasps the vine & steps off with negligible velocity.

How soon can she reach Tarzan?

- What happens to the period of a pendulum if
- its mass is doubled,
- it’s moved to a planet whose g is ¼ that of Earth,
- its length is quadrupled?

- A pendulum becomes nonlinear if its amplitude becomes too large.
- As the amplitude increases, how will its period changes?
- If you start the pendulum by striking it when it’s hanging vertically,
- will it undergo oscillatory motion no matter how hard it’s hit?

- If it’s hit hard enough,
- motion becomes rotational.

Physical Pendulum = any object that’s free to swing

Small angular displacement SHM

When walking, the leg not in contact of the ground swings forward,

acting like a physical pendulum.

Approximating the leg as a uniform rod, find the period for a leg 90 cm long.

A car’s suspension has m = 1200 kg & k = 58 kN / m.
