Question

A mass oscillates on a horizontal spring in a simple harmonic motion. It is observed that the duration of one full oscillation cycle is 0.50 π seconds, and that the maximal displacement of the oscillator from the equilibrium is 12.0 cm. Let time instant taken as t = 0.00 sec correspond to the moment when the mass is at the location 10.0 cm to the left of the equilibrium, and moving to the left.

1. Find oscillator’s velocity and acceleration at t = 0.00 sec.

2. Obtain the equations for ?? (?) and ?? (?), making sure that numerical values for ?, ? and ?0 are substituted in. Show all relevant work in determining ?0.

A) A mass on a spring vibrates in simple harmonic motion at a
frequency of 4.0 Hz and an amplitude of 8.0 cm. If a timer is
started when its displacement from equilibrium is a maximum (hence
x = 8 cm when t = 0), what is the displacement of the mass when t =
3.7 s?
B) A mass of 4.0 kg, resting on a horizontal, frictionless
surface, is attached on the right to a horizontal spring with
spring...

Simple harmonic motion of a mass-on-a-vertical-spring is being
demonstrated to a physics class. Students are asked to find the
spring constant, k. After suspending a mass of 335.0 g from the
spring, one student notices the spring is displaced 45.5 cm from
its previous equilibrium. With this information, calculate the
spring constant.
In the final section of the class, a student is asked to
investigate the energy distribution of the spring system described
above. The student pulls the mass down...

Simple Harmonic Motion: Mass on Spring
(Explanation of lab.)
[ The intentions of this lab were to further
our understanding of spring mass motion by creating a harmonic
motion system to find values for spring force and oscillation
periods. By the end of the experiment, our group was able to
experimentally determine how the measure of spring constant,
k, in a harmonic motion system depends upon oscillation
periods and ??y. We began our finding of k by running the
experiment...
