Reviews "This is an excellent textbook, full of interesting material clearly explained, and fully worthy of being studied by future contributors Author Bios H.

He taught physics at Imperial College, London where his research interests were in shock waves and magnetohydrodynamics. A simple pendulum is suspended from a peg on a vertical wall.

The pendulum is pulled away from the wall to a horizontal position Fig. The ball hits the wall, the coefficient of restitution being 2 5. Let x, y be the coordinates of the initial position A of the bob Fig.

Two identical balls A and B each of mass 0. The spring-mass system is constrained to move inside a rigid smooth pipe bent in the form of a circle as shown in Fig. The pipe is fixed in a horizontal plane. The centres of the balls can move in a circle of radius 0. If the earth were a homogeneous sphere of radius R and a straight hole were bored in it through its centre, show that a body dropped into the hole will execute SHM.

Find its time period. Solution Suppose AB is a straight hole Fig. A body of mass m is dropped into the hole. At any instant of time the body is at C at a distance x from the centre of the earth. A cylindrical piston of mass M slides smoothly inside a long cylinder closed at one end, enclosing a certain mass of gas. The cylinder is kept with its axis horizontal.

If the piston is disturbed from its equilibrium position, it oscillates simple harmonically. Show that the period of oscillation will be Fig. The piston is moved isothermally from C to D through a distance x Fig. The gas inside the cylinder will be compressed and it will try to push the piston to its original position. An ideal gas is enclosed in a vertical cylindrical container and supports a freely moving piston of mass M.

The piston and the cylinder have equal cross-sectional area A. Atmospheric pressure is P0 and when the piston is in equilibrium, the volume of the gas is V0. The piston is now displaced slightly from the equilibrium position.

Assuming that the system is completely isolated from its surroundings, show that the piston executes simple harmonic motion and find the frequency of oscillation.

T1 LMHints: Consider a linear homogeneous differential equation of degree n: Suppose that a driving force F1 t produces an oscillation x1 t and another driving force F2 t produces an oscillation x2 t [when F2 t is the only driving force].

The equation of the path is obtained by eliminating t from these two equations. The position of the particle in the xy plane is given by r Find the resultant motion. Find the resultant motion due to superposition of a large number of simple harmonic motions of same amplitude and same frequency along the x-axis but differing progressively in phase.

The resultant amplitude may be obtained by the vector polygon method Fig. The polygon will then become an arc of a circle and the chord joining the first and the last points of the arc will represent C the amplitude of the resultant vibration Fig. When the last component vibration is at B, the first and the B last component vibrations are in phase, the polygon becomes O a complete circle and the amplitude of the resultant vibration Fig.

Thus, due to superposition of two simple A harmonic vibrations at right angles to each other, the displacement of the particle will be along a curve given by Eqn. The particle vibrates along the straight line AC Fig.

The direction of rotation clockwise or anticlockwise of the particle may be obtained form the x- and y-motions of the particle when t is increased gradually. Thus in this case the particle moves in the anticlockwise direction. As the phase difference is changed gradually, the shape of the loop also changes gradually. Two vibrations of frequencies in the ratio 1: Find the equation of the figure traced by the particle. It should be noted from Eqn. In general, if the frequencies are in the ratio 1: N, the curve will have N loops.

What deductions may be made about the frequency of the other tuning fork? Two-dimensional harmonic oscillation: The mass m is free to move in the xy plane Fig. It is connected to the rigid walls by two unstretched massless springs of spring constant, k1 oriented along the x-axis and by the unstretched massless springs of spring constant k2 oriented along the y-axis.

The relaxed length of each spring is a. Discuss the motion of the mass in the xy plane in the small oscillation approximation. Solution In the general configuration [Fig. Thus we find that the x-component of the return force is entirely due to the two springs of lengths l1 and l2: Thus we get two uncoupled differential equations for the mass m along the x- and y-directions: The spherical pendulum: Consider a simple pendulum of length l.

Find the motion of the bob for small oscillations x and y are small. Solution Suppose A is the position of the bob at any instant of time Fig. From A we drop a perpendicular AB on the z-axis. These equation can be solved independently: Find the angular frequencies for the normal modes of oscillations and the normal coordinates. Solution For normal modes of oscillations, both the degrees of freedom, namely x1 and x2 oscillate with the same frequency and they oscillate in phase or out of phase with one another: Substituting Eqns.

From Eqn. Normal coordinates: If the differential equations are coupled, we have to search for new variables which satisfy uncoupled differential equations. The new variables are then called normal coordinates.

Suppose X and Y are obtained from the linear combinations of x1 and x2 so that we may write Longitudinal oscillations of two coupled masses: Two bodies of masses m1 and m2 are attached to each other and to two fixed points by three identical light springs of relaxed length a.

The whole arrangement rests on a smooth horizontal table. Find the angular frequencies of the normal modes for longitudinal oscillations of small amplitude. Describe the motions of the two bodies for each normal mode. Solution Let the spring constant of each spring be k.

We consider the forces acting on m1 and m2 when m1 is displaced from its equilibrium position by x1 and m2 is displaced by x2 from its equilibrium position Fig. The first spring is stretched by amount x1 and the force a m1 a m2 a a b x1 x2 Fig. The second spring is stretched by x2 — x1. The third spring is compressed by amount x2. The lower frequency solution of 2. The two bodies oscillate in phase. Mode 2: The higher frequency solution of 2.

The two bodies oscillate in antiphase. The central spring has the same length as it had at equilibrium, so that the central spring exerts no force on either mass. When the left hand mass goes to the right, the right hand mass also goes to the right; when the left hand mass goes to the left, the right hand mass also goes to the left, the length of the central spring remaining unchanged always. When the left hand mass goes to the right, the right hand mass goes to the left [the central spring is compressed].

When the left hand mass goes to the left, the right hand mass to the right [the central spring is elongated]. The two masses move in opposite directions antiphase. When the central spring is compressed, the side springs are elongated, and when the central spring is elongated, the side springs are compressed.

By adding Eqns. Two bodies of masses m1 and m2 are attached to each other and to two fixed points by three identical light springs of relaxed length a0. Find the angular frequencies of the normal modes for transverse oscillations. Solution At equilibrium let the length of each spring be a and the spring constant be k. Let y1 and y2 be the vertical displacements of the masses m1 and m2 from the initial positions at any instant of time Fig.

Thus the normal mode frequencies are given by Eqn. Two identical simple pendulums having the same length l and same bob mass m are suspended by strings of negligible mass. The bobs are connected by a spring of relaxed length a. At the equilibrium position the spring has its relaxed length. Assuming small-oscillation amplitudes in the vertical plane, find the normal modes of oscillations of the system.

Solution At the general configuration Fig. If the spring were not present, we have for the x-component of motion of the spherical pendulums. How does the modulation amplitude vary with time?

Number of beats per second is twice the modulation frequency. Thus A2mod t oscillates about its average value at twice the modulation frequency i. Two tuning forks when sounded together give 4 beats per second. One is unison with a length of 96 cm of a sonometer wire under certain tension and the other with Find the frequencies of these forks.

Two identical simple pendulums a and b with the same string length l and the same bob mass m are coupled by a massless spring of spring constant k which is attached to the bobs. The spring is unstretched when both the strings of the pendulums are vertical. Find the expressions for the energy of bob a and that of bob b at any time.

Assume weak coupling between the oscillators. Solution For solutions of i and ii see problem 13 of Chapter 2. The solutions of Eqns 2. From Eqns. We have from Eqns.

The pendulum a is under the influence of two harmonic modes of equal amplitudes with slightly different frequencies. Thus the motion a exhibits beats. The pendulum b also exhibits beats. Initially the bob b is at zero and the bob a has displacement 2A. Gradually the oscillation amplitude of pendulum a decreases and that of pendulum b increases, until pendulum a comes to rest and pendulum b oscillates with the amplitude and energy that pendulum a started out with.

Here we neglect the frictional forces. The vibration energy is transferred completely from one pendulum to the other and the process continues. The vibration energy slowly flows back and forth between a and b. One complete round trip for the energy from a to b and back to a is a beat. The beat period is the time for the round trip. For the pendulum a the oscillation amplitude Amod t is almost constant over one cycle of the fast oscillation.

If the spring is weak it does not have significant amount of stored energy. The total energy is twice the average value of the KE: When the pendulum a has the maximum energy, the pendulum b has zero energy, and vice versa. The total energy of the system E is constant and it flows back and forth between the two pendulums at the beat frequency.

Consider the motion of a three-particle system in which the particles all lie in a straight line. The two end particles, each of mass m, are bound to the central particle of mass M through the springs of stiffness k as shown in Fig. If two tuning forks A and B are sounded together they produce 5 beats per second. When A is slightly loaded with wax they produce 3 beats per second when sounded together.

Find the original frequency of A if the frequency of B is Hz. You are given four tuning forks. The fork with the lowest frequency vibrates at Hz. By using two tuning forks at a time, the following beat frequencies are heard: What are the possible frequencies of the other tuning forks? You are given five tuning forks, each of which has a different frequency. By trying every pair of tuning forks find a maximum number of different beat frequencies b minimum number of different beat frequencies.

Two identical piano wires have a fundamental frequency of Hz when kept under the same tension. The Damped Harmonic Oscillator 3 3. Such a motion is called damped harmonic motion. Suppose a particle of mass m is subject to a restoring force proportional to the distance from a fixed point on the x-axis and a damping force proportional to the velocity. Equation 3. This is equivalent to Eqn. Obtain an expression for the displacement of the damped harmonic oscillator where the damping force is proportional to the velocity.

Discuss the effect of the damping on the displacement and frequency of the oscillator. Solution The differential equation of the damped harmonic motion is given by Eqn. Case I: Case II: Its amplitude R exp —bt decreases exponentially with time. Suppose that the values of x in both directions corresponding 2 2 to these times are x0, x1, x2, x3 etc. Thus the damping coefficient b can be found from an experimental measurement of consecutive amplitudes. We can regard equation 3. If the oscillator is damped, the mechanical energy is not constant but decreases with time.

At the end of the recoil, a damping dashpot is arranged in such a way that the launcher returns to the firing position without any oscillation critical damping. Solution a We use the principle of conservation of energy for the rocket launcher and the recoil spring: Solve the problem of simple pendulum if a damping force proportional to the instantaneous tangential velocity is taken into account.

Now we may discuss in the light of Eqn. Three cases arise. In cases 1 and 2 the pendulum bob gradually returns to the equilibrium position without oscillation. Assuming that the effect of viscosity can be described by a force proportional to velocity, determine the constant of proportionality.

The effect of buoyancy is neglected. Determine the equilibrium extension of the spring. Show that the motion is under damped and find its period of oscillation. Find the time in which the amplitude of oscillation falls by a factor of e. Solution a When the mass is lifted vertically it moves with a constant velocity.

Thus the net force acting on it is zero: A spring supports a mass of 5 g which performs damped oscillations. It is found to have successive maxima of 2. An automobile suspension system is critically damped and its period of oscillation with no damping is one second. Find the quality factor Q for the damped oscillations of Problem 5.

Show that the object does not change its direction and the kinetic energy of the object keeps on decreasing. So the object does not change its direction. Solution The force experienced by the body is 10—2 m2. Thus, we have to choose the —ve sign.

A particular solution of Eqn. After a long time when x1 becomes negligible the motion of the mass m is given by Eqn. The vibrations or oscillations represented by x2 are called forced vibrations or forced oscillations. Thus from Eqn. The resonator consists of either a spherical or a cylindrical air cavity with a small neck Fig. The dimension of the cavity is small in comparison Fig.

In case of spherical cavity the volume of the cavity is fixed whereas the volume is variable in case of cylindrical cavity. The natural frequency of vibration of Helmholtz resonator is given by v S The natural frequency of the resonator can be changed by changing the volume V of the resonator. When the sound wave of frequency resonant with the natural frequency of the resonator is incident on it, the resonator will produce sharp response. The frequency of the vibrating body is then equal to the natural frequency of the resonator given by Eqn.

Set up the differential equation of motion and find the steady-state solution. Solution The differential Eqn. The solution x1 is the displacement of the damped harmonic oscillator. Substituting in Eqn. The complete solution of Eqn. These beats are transient, as the natural vibrations become small after a short interval of time.

Obtain the expression for the velocity of the mass m when it is in the steady state forced vibration of problem 1. This phenomenon is known as velocity resonance. The velocity amplitude at resonance is f. It is maximum when the denominator or the square of the denominator is a minimum. Note that the angular frequency p of the periodic impressed force at amplitude resonance is slightly smaller than that at velocity resonance. In the steady state forced vibration describe how the phase of the driven system changes with the frequency of the driving system.

There is no difference of phase between the driven system and the impressed force. Show that in the steady state forced vibration the rate of dissipation of energy due to frictional force is equal to the rate of supply of energy by the driving force in each cycle.
