An object of mass of 2.7 kg is attached to a spring with a force
constant of k = 280 N/m.
At t = 0, the object is observed to be 2.0 cm from its equilibrium
position with a speed of
55 cm/s in the -x direction. The object undergoes simple harmonic
motion “back and
forth motion” without any loss of energy.
(a) Sketch a diagram labeling all forces on the object and
calculate the maximum
displacement from equilibrium of...

The motion of a spring that is subject to a frictional force or
a damping force (such as a shock absorber on a car) is often
modeled by the product of an exponential function and a sine or
cosine function. Suppose the equation of motion of a point on such
a spring is
s(t)=7e−1.2tsin(2πt)s(t)=7e−1.2tsin(2πt)
where ss is measured in centimeters and tt is measured in
seconds. Find the velocity of the point after tt seconds.
v(t)v(t) =
Graph both the...

An object with mass 2.5 kg is attached to a spring with spring
stiffness constant k = 270 N/m and is executing simple harmonic
motion. When the object is 0.020 m from its equilibrium position,
it is moving with a speed of 0.55 m/s.
(a) Calculate the amplitude of the motion. ____m
(b) Calculate the maximum velocity attained by the object.
[Hint: Use conservation of energy.] ____m/s

A spring-mass system consists of a 0.5 kg mass attached to a
spring with a force constant of k = 8 N/m. You may neglect the mass
of the spring. The system undergoes simple harmonic motion with an
amplitude of 5 cm. Calculate the following: 1. The period T of the
motion 2. The maximum speed Vmax 3. The speed of the object when it
is at x = 3.5 cm from the equilibrium position. 4. The total energy
E...

In addition to the buoyant force, an object moving in a liquid
experiences a linear drag force Fdrag = (bv, direction opposite the
motion), where b is a constant. For a sphere of radius R, the drag
constant can be shown to be b = 6πηR, where η is the viscosity of
the liquid. Consider a sphere of radius R and density ρ that is
released from rest at the surface of a liquid with density ρf.
a. Find an...

An object of mass one unit is hanging from a spring. Initially
it is held still at 1/2 unit of length below its equilibrium
position. It is then released. Using a restoring force given by
k=16 and a damping constant c=8 find x(t), where x(t) gives the
position of the weight at time t, sketch the graph of the function
(Simple Harmonic motion)

A toy is undergoing SHM on the end of a horizontal spring with
force constant 300 N/m . When the toy is 0.140 m from its
equilibrium position, it is observed to have a speed of 3 m/s and a
total energy of 5.2 J .
a) find the mass of the toy in kg
b) find the amplitude of the motion
c) find the max speed attained by object during its motion

A 50.0-g object connected to a spring with a force constant of
100.0 N/m oscillates on a horizontal frictionless surface with an
amplitude of 8.00 cm.
a) What is the period (in seconds) and frequency of its
motion?
b) Assuming that the object's equilibrium position (i.e. when
the spring is unstretched) is designated as x = 0, and that at t =
0 the object is located at maximum amplitude, x(t) = A cos (ωt),
describes the motion. What is...

An object of mass m = 0.25 kg has a horizontal spring attached
to its left side, and slides along a frictionless surface. The
spring constant is κ = 0.4 N m . At t = 0 s, the object is
displaced 0.1m to the right of its equilibrium position. Its
initial velocity is 0.4 m s , toward the right.
a) Calculate the period T of the motion. b) Calculate the
angular frequency ω. c) Calculate the frequency ν....
