Answer #1

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...

Consider a block attached to a horizontal spring that
undergoes simple harmonic motion as shown with an amplitude of A
=10 cm
If the kinetic energy of the block is increasing the
block must be
(a) moving away from the equilibrium
position
(b) moving towards the equilibrium position
c) at equilibrium position
(d) maximum displacement

5. A mass attached to a spring
undergoes a simple harmonic motion (SHM) on a frictionless
horizontal surface. Suppose you increase the amplitude of the SHM,
which of the following quantities DOES (DO)
NOT increase? (There can be more than one answer)
1. The period of the SHM
2. The maximum acceleration
3. The frequency of the SHM
4. The maximum kinetic energy
5. The maximum spring potential
energy
6. The maximum speed.

A 1500 gram mass moving in a simple harmonic motion (SHM) passes
through the equilbrium point (x=0) with a spped of 2.60m/s. The
spring compresses and reaches a maximum displacement of 11.0
cm:
a. Calculate its spring constant by using consv. of energy
b. Calculate the period and frequency.
c. What is its velocity at T=10 seconds?
d. What is the maximum force that spring exerts on the block
during its motion? Where does this max force occur?

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

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...

A child’s train is
experiencing simple harmonic motion attached to a spring

its equilibrium point, it is found to have a velocity of 5m/s and a
total energy of 5.3J.
(a) Find the maximum
displacement of the motion.
(b) Find the maximum
velocity of the train du
(C) Find the mass of
the train.ring its motion.

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...

For an object with simple harmonic motion;
a) What can you say about its speed, acceleration and kinetic
energy at equilibrium?
b) For simple harmonic motion given by x = 3,8 cos (5πt / 4 + π / 6), what is its amplitude, frequency, position and speed for t = 0?

An object with mass 3.8 kg is executing simple harmonic motion,
