Question 1.

A simple pendulum is transferred from earth to moon. Will it go faster or slower?

Answer:

The value of g at moon is low compared to earth. The decrease in g will increase time period of simple pendulum. Hence pendulum will vibrate slower.

### Plus One Physics Oscillations Four Mark Questions and Answers

Question 1.

A simple harmonic motion is represented by x(t) = Acosωt.

- What do you mean by simple harmonic motion.
- An SHM has amplitude A and time period T, What is the time taken to travel from x = A to x = A/2

Answer:

1. Simple harmonic motion is the simplest form of oscillatory motion. The oscillatory motion is said to be simple harmonic motion if the displacement ‘x’ of the partide from the origin varies with time as

2. x = Acosωt

Question 2.

- Define simple harmonic motion for a particle moving in a straight line.
- Use your definition to explain how simple harmonic motion can be represented by the equation.
- Show that the above equation is dimensionally correct.
- A mechanical system is known to perform simple harmonic motion. What quantity must be measured in order to determine frequency for the system?

Answer:

- A periodic motion in which acceleration is directly proportional to displacement and opposite in direction is called simple harmonic oscillation.
- Mathematically, a simple harmonic oscillation can be expressed as

y = a sin wt (or) y = a cos wt - y = a sin w t

Sin wt has no dimension. Hence we need to consider dimension of ‘a’ only, ie, y = a, L = L - Its period is determined.

Question 3.

A particle executes simple harmonic motion according to the equation x = 5sin\(\left(\frac{2 \pi}{3} t\right)\)

- find the period of the oscillation
- What is the minimum time required for the particle to move between two points 2.5cm on either side of the mean position?

Answer:

1. x = 5sin\(\left(\frac{2 \pi}{3} t\right)\), when we compare this equation

with standard S.H.M, x = a sin wt.

We get wt = \(\frac{2 \pi}{3} t\)

2. y = a sin wt

2.5 = 5 sin w × t

Time taken to travel 2.5 from the mean position is 0.25 sec. Hence time taken to travel 2.5 cm on either side of the mean position is 0.5 sec.

Question 4.

x(t) = displacement x as a function of time t

A = amplitude

ω = angular frequency

(ω t + Φ) = phase (time-dependent)

Φ = phase constant or initial phase

If the body be displaced towards right through a small distance Y, a restoring force will be developed.

Comparing this equation with standard differential equation \(\frac{d^{2} x}{d t^{2}}\) + ω^{2}x = 0

We get ω^{2} = k/m

Question 7.

A particle execute simple harmonic motion according to the equation, x = 5sin \(\left(\frac{2 \pi}{3}\right) t\)

- What is the period of the oscillation?
- Write an expression for velocity and acceleration of the above particle.

Question 8.

- Arrive the differential equation of SHM.
- What do you mean by seconds pendulum.

1. The force acting simple harmonic motion is proportional to the displacement and is always directed towards the centre of motion.

Comparing this equation with standard differential equation \(\frac{d^{2} x}{d t^{2}}\) + ω^{2}x = 0,

We get ω^{2} = k/m.

2. A pendulum having period 2 sec is called seconds pendulum.

Question 10.

- Is oscillation of a mass suspended by a spring is simple harmonic?
- Write period of oscillation of the spring?
- There are two springs, one delicate and another stout. For which spring, the frequency of oscillation will be more?
- Two un equal springs of same material are loaded with same load, which one will have large value of time period?

Answer:

1. Yes

2. T = \(2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{m}{k}}\)

3. When a stout spring loaded with mass ‘m’, the extension (l) produced is large.

∴ T is large, because T = \(2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{m}{k}}\),

T is small, i.e, frequency is large. Stout spring oscillate with larger frequency.

4. When a longer spring is locked with weight mg, the extension T is more

∴ T is large, because T = \(2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{l}{g}}\)

So longer spring will have a large value of period.

Question 11.

A simple pendulum consists of a metallic bob suspended from a long straight thread whose one

end is fixed to a rigid support.

- What is the time period of second’s pendulum?
- Derive an expression for period of simple pendulum.

Answer:

1. 2 sec

2.

Consider a mass m suspended from one end of a string of length L fixed at the other end as shown in figure. Suppose P is the instantaneous position of the pendulum. At this instant its string makes an angle θ with the vertical.

The forces acting on the bob are (1) weight of bob F_{g}(mg) acting vertically downward. (2) Tension T in the string.

The gravitational force F_{g} can be divided into a radial component F_{g}Cosθ and tangential component F_{g}Sinθ. The tangential component F_{g}Sinθ produces a restoring torque.

Restoring torque τ = – F_{g} sinθ . L

τ = – m_{g} sinθ . L _____(1)

-ve sign shown that the torque and angular displacement θ are oppositely directed. For rotational motion of bob,

τ = Iα ______(2)

Where I is moment of inertia about the point of suspension and α is angular acceleration. From eq (1) and eq (2).

Iα = – mgsinθ . L

If we assume that the displacement θ is small, sinθ ≈ θ

∴ Iα = -mgθ . L

Iα + mgθ L = 0

Comparirig eq (3) with standard differential equation

∴ period of simple pendulum,

for simple pendulum I = mL^{2}

Substituting I = mL^{2} we get

The above equation gives that T is indepent of mass.

- a = ky
^{2} - a = -ky
- a = -ky
^{2}

Where ‘a’ – acceleration, y – displacement

- Prove that simple harmonic motion is the projection of uniform circular motion on any diameter of the circle.
- Represent graphically the variations of potential energy, kinetic energy and total energy as a function of position ‘x’ for a linear harmonic oscillator. Explain the graph.

Answer:

1. a = -ky

2.

Consider a particle moving along the circumference of a circle of radius ‘a’ and centre O, with uniform angular velocity w. AB and CD are two mutually perpendicular diameters along X and Y axis. At time t = 0.

let the particle be at P_{0} so that ∠P_{0}OB = Φ. After time ‘t’ second, let the particle reach P so that ∠POP_{0} = ω t. N is the foot of the perpendicular drawn from P on the diameter CD.

Similarly M is the foot of the perpendicular drawn from P to the diameter AB. When the particle moves along the circumference of the circle, the foot of the perpendicular executes to and fro motion along the diameter CD or AB with O as the mean position.

From the right angle triangle O MP, we get

Cos (ωt + Φ) = \(\frac{O M}{O P}\)

∴ OM = OPcos(ωt + Φ)

X= a cos (ωt + Φ) _______(1)

Similarly, we get

Sin (ωt + Φ) = \(\frac{y}{a}\) (or)

Y = a sin (ωt + Φ) _______(2)

Equation (1) and (2) are similar to equations of S.H.M. The equation(1) and (2) shows that the projection of uniform circular motion on any diameter is S.H.M.

3. KE = PE

\(\frac{1}{2}\)mω^{2}(a^{2} – x^{2}) = \(\frac{1}{2}\) = mω^{2}x^{2}

Solving we get, x = \(\frac{a}{\sqrt{2}}\)

where a is the amplitude of oscillation.

Question 2.

The spring has a scale that reads from zero to 30 kg. The length of the scale is 30cm.

- Calculate the force constant K
- If the period of oscillation is 1 sec. Calculate mass of the body attached to the spring.
- If the spring is cut into two halves, What is the force constant of each half?

Answer:

1. 30 cm = 30kg

1 cm = \(\frac{30}{30}\) = 1kg

∴ Spring constant K = 1 kg/cm = 10N/cm =1000N/m.

2.

3. If spring of spring constant K is cut in to half, spring constant of each half became, 2K
