Question

If I have a simple harmonic oscillator with an amplitude 4.2cm and has a total energy of 0.400J

What would be the max speed of the the mass if the mass hanging on the oscillator is 3kg, and what is it's period of oscillation.

Also, what is the kinetic energy of the entire system when the position of the oscillator is 0.850 cm from the center?

A simple harmonic oscillator consists of a mass of 100g attached
to a constant spring is 10^4 dynas/cm. At time t=0, the mass is
about 3 cm from the equilibrium point and with an initial velocity
of 5cm/s, both in the positive direction.A dissipative force is now
added. Assume that you start moving from rest at the maximum
amplitude position, and after oscillating for 10 s, your maximum
amplitude is reduced to half of the initial value. Calculate:
A- dissipation...

1. An object-spring system moving with simple harmonic motion
(SHM) has an amplitude A.
(a) What is the total energy of the system in terms of k and A
only?
(b) Suppose at a certain instant the kinetic energy is twice the
elastic potential energy, KE = 2PE. Re-write this equation by using
only the variables for the mass, m, velocity, v, spring constant,
k, and position, x.
(c) Using the results of (a) and (b) and conservation of energy,...

As you know, a common example of a harmonic oscillator is a mass
attached to a spring. In this problem, we will consider a
horizontally moving block attached to a spring. Note that,
since the gravitational potential energy is not changing in this
case, it can be excluded from the calculations.
For such a system, the potential energy is stored in the spring
and is given by
U=12kx2,
where k is the force constant of the spring and
x is...
