Answer #1

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

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...

A mass at the end of a horizontal ideal spring undergoes simple
harmonic motion of amplitude 0.700 m and of frequency 3.00 Hz as it
slides on a frictionless horizontal surface. The particle is at x =
0.700 m at time t = 0.00 s. The magnitude of the force on the
particle at t = 0.00 s is 14.6 N.
Calculate:
(a) the position of the particle at t = 0.452 s,
(b) the velocity of the particle at...

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 metal ball attached to a spring moves in simple harmonic

(c) What is the maximum acceleration of the ball? (Enter the
magnitude in...

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

A plastic ball attached to a spring moves in simple harmonic
motion. The amplitude of the ball's motion is 11.5 cm, and the
spring constant is 6.00 N/m. When the ball is halfway between its
equilibrium position and its maximum displacement from equilibrium,
its speed is 22.7 cm/s.
What is the mass of the ball (in kg)?
Answer- kg
What is the period of oscillation (in s)?
Answer- s
What is the maximum acceleration of the ball? (Enter the...

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?

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...
