A TRAMPOLINE exerts a restoring force on the jumper that is directly proportional to the average force required to displace the mat. Such restoring forces provide the driving forces necessary for objects that oscillate with simple harmonic motion.

- Write and apply Hooke’s Law for objects moving with simple harmonic motion.

- Write and apply formulas for finding the frequency f,period T,velocity v, or accelerationa in terms of displacementxor time t.

- Describe the motion of pendulums and calculate the length required to produce a given frequency.

AmplitudeA

Simple periodic motion is that motion in which a body moves back and forth over a fixed path, returning to each position and velocity after a definite interval of time.

Period, T, is the time for one complete oscillation. (seconds,s)

Frequency, f, is the number of complete oscillations per second. Hertz (s-1)

Simple harmonic motionis periodic motion in the absence of friction and produced by a restoring force that is directly proportional to the displacement and oppositely directed.

A restoring force, F, actsin the direction opposite the displacement of the oscillating body.

When a spring is stretched, there is a restoring force that is proportional to the displacement.

F = -kx

The spring constant k is a property of the spring given by:

The stretching force is the weight (W = mg) of the 4-kg mass:

F = (4 kg)(9.8 m/s2) = 39.2 N

- Displacement is positive when the position is to the right of the equilibrium position (x = 0) and negative when located to the left.

- The maximum displacement is called the amplitude A.

Example 3:A 2-kg mass hangs at the end of a spring whose constant is k = 400 N/m. The mass is displaced a distance of 12 cm and released. What is the acceleration at the instant the displacement is x = +7 cm?

a = -14.0 m/s2

Note: When the displacement is +7 cm (downward), the acceleration is -14.0 m/s2 (upward) independent of motion direction.

The maximum acceleration occurs when the restoring force is a maximum; i.e., when the stretch or compression of the spring is largest.

The total mechanical energy(U + K) of a vibrating system is constant; i.e., it is the same at any point in the oscillating path.

For any two points A and B, we may write:

- At points A and B, the velocity is zero and the acceleration is a maximum. The total energy is:

Example 5:A 2-kg mass hangs at the end of a spring whose constant is k = 800 N/m. The mass is displaced a distance of 10 cm and released. What is the velocity at the instant the displacement is x = +6 cm?

½mv2 + ½kx 2 = ½kA2

The velocity is maximum when x = 0:

½mv2 + ½kx 2 = ½kA2

v = ± 2.00 m/s

The reference circle compares the circular motion of an object with its horizontal projection.

x = Horizontal displacement.

A = Amplitude (xmax).

q = Reference angle.

The velocity (v) of an oscillating body at any instant is the horizontal component of its tangential velocity (vT).

vT = wR = wA; w = 2f

v = -vTsin ; = wt

v = -wA sin w t

v = -2f A sin 2ft

The acceleration(a) of an oscillating body at any instant is the horizontal component of its centripetal acceleration (ac).

a = -accos q = -ac cos(wt)

R = A

a = -w2A cos(wt)

For any body undergoing simple harmonic motion:

Since a = -4p2f2x and T = 1/f

The frequency and the period can be found if the displacement and acceleration are known. Note that the signs of aand x will always be opposite.

For a vibrating body with an elastic restoring force:

Recall that F = ma = -kx:

The frequencyfand the periodTcan be found if the spring constant k and mass m of the vibrating body are known. Use consistent SI units.

The period T of a torsion pendulum is given by:

Where k’ is a torsion constant that depends on the material from which the rod is made; I is the rotational inertia of the vibrating system.

Example 9:A 160 g solid disk is attached to the end of a wire, then twisted at 0.8 rad and released. The torsion constant k’ is 0.025 N m/rad. Find the period.

(Neglect the torsion in the wire)

For Disk:

I = ½mR2

I = ½(0.16 kg)(0.12 m)2 =0.00115 kg m2

T = 1.35 s

Simple harmonic motion (SHM) is that motion in which a body moves back and forth over a fixed path, returning to each position and velocity after a definite interval of time.

The frequency (rev/s) is the reciprocal of the period (time for one revolution).
