SIMPLE HARMONIC MOTION
I. Hooke’s Law
Fs = -kx
Where:
x = displacement from equilibrium position (m)
k = spring constant (N/m)
Fs = “restoring Force” (F)
{since the force restores the mass to equilibrium
Go to IB Lab on SHM and Hooke’s Law
Some Definitions:
A = amplitude (maximum displacement from the rest
position) (m)
T = Period (time to complete on motion (s)
f = frequency number of cycles (motions) per second
(1 cycles/sec = 1 Hertz = 1 Hz)
x = -A
Since:
o
x=A
Fs = -kx
Then: A = x (at maximum displacement)
And maximum:
And Since:
Fs = -kA
F = ma
F = ma = Fs = -kA
a = F/m
a = (-k/m)A
(maximum acceleration)
And:
a = (-k/m)x
Which would be the acceleration at any point. At
equilibrium position x = 0 and acceleration would
be zero as well but mass would be travelling at its
maximum speed!)
Acceleration would vary from:
(-k/m)x to (+k/m)x

II. Potential and Kinetic Elastic Energy
Remember:

K.E. = ½ mv2

Energy
P.E.s = 1/2kx2
Law of Conservation still applies: Total energy in a system is always conserved!
Total Energy before
= Total Energy after
P.E.g1 + K.E.1 + P.E.s1 =
P.E.g2 + K.E.2 + P.E.s2 + Q
Heat Energy
due to friction
For a spring oscillating on a table:
Since there is no change in height:
P.E.g1 = P.E.g2 (mass is on a table)
And we can ignore this term from the conservation of energy equation.
We will also assume there is no friction so there is no heat loss: Q = 0)
Initial compression a Mass-spring:
P.E.s1 = -1/2kx2 = -1/2kA2
K.E.1 = 1/2mv2 (max K.E. and therefore max.
speed v at the equilibrium position)
P.E.s2 = +1/2kx2 = +1/2kA2
x = -A
o
x=A
v1
At any other position of the mass (x1):
T.E. = P.E.s + K.E.
x = x1
T.E. = 1/2kx12 + 1/2mv12
III. Velocity as a function of Position
A
At maximum displacement, A, the
velocity would be zero
T.E. = P.E.s = 1/2kA2
v=0
At some other position, x1, the velocity is v.
x1
The store potential energy is being
transferred by motion into kinetic energy.
P.E.s = P.E.s(x1) + 1/2mv2
v
1/2kA2 = 1/2kx12 + 1/2mv2
1/2kA2 = 1/2kx12 + 1/2mv2
Cancel out the 1/2
kA2 = kx12 + mv2
Move the Kx2 to other side
kA2 - kx12 = mv2
Factor out the k
k(A2 - x12) = mv2
Divide both sides by m
k/m(A2 - x12) = v2
v =
k/m(A2 - x2)
Taking the square root of
both sides yields a simple
equation for calculating the
speed of a mass at any point
along is SHM.
IV. Comparing SHM with Uniform Circular Motion
Imagine this small red ball rotating around a
vertical circle at a constant speed.
Also imagine a light source above the ball shining
down on to the table top.
The red ball’s shadow would simply move back and
forth replicating the SHM of the mass attached to a
spring seen earlier.
Since the sliding mass-spring and the ball’s motions are similar they can be dealt with
similar equations. This will also allows us to bring in circular motion and uniform circle
mathematics into play.
The side of a triangle formed by radius A, and
vertical length y is given by:
A
ø
y
y =
(A2 - x2)
(From Pythagorean theory)
Since :
v =±
Let the constant C =
k/m(A2 - x2)
k/m
Unit Circle
Therefore:
v= ±C
(A2 - x2)
Lets focus in on the velocity of the object in uniform circular motion:
ø
vo
vx
A
ø
Its tangential velocity vo is shown in yellow.
Its SHM velocity vx is shown in green.
Similar triangles:
x
(A2 - x2)
vx
Sin ø =
and
vo
Sin ø =
Therefore:
vx
vo
(A2 - x2)
=
A
A
A little re-arranging will yield this:
v
=
vo
A
Remember this:
v= ±C
(A2 - x2)
Therefore:
C =
(A2 - x2)
vo
A
V. Period and Frequency
1/T = f
and
f = 1/T
r
v = d/t
For circular motion:
d = 2πr and t = T
Therefore:
And finally:
v = 2πr /T = 2πrf
T = 2πr/v
f = v/2πr
Bringing back energy:
P.E.
=
K.E.
1/2kA2
=
1/2mv2
Cancel out the ½:
Re-arrange a little:
1/2kA2
=
1/2mv2
kA2
=
mv2
A2 /v2
=
m/k
A /v
=
m/k
For Period:
T = 2πr/v
Let r = A (see unit circle)
T = 2π
And the reciprocal would
be the frequency:
f = 1/2π
m/k
k/m
One more set of energy equations:
v = ω
xo2 - x2
K.E. = 1/2mv2 = 1/2m (ω
ω = 2πf
xo2 - x2 )2
K.E. = 1/2mv2 = 1/2m ω2 (xo2 - x2)
P.E. = 1/2m ω2 x2
T.E. = -1/2m ω2 xo2
For an object
undergoing SHM
Example 1
r = 0.56 m
A 0.35 kg ball moves in a horizontal circular motion
completing 28 revolutions in 45 s.
a) What is the frequency and period of the ball?
f = 28/45 = 0.622 Hz
T = 45/28 = 1.61 s
b) What is the angular velocity?
ω = 2π/T = 2πf = 2π x 0.622 = 3.91 rad/s
c) What is the angular acceleration?
a = - ω2x
a = - (3.91)20.56 =

VI. Position as a function of Time:
The ball is at position P along the circular path.
P
A
The position of the red ball along the x-axis
is given by x.
ø
Cos ø =
x
x
A
x = A x cos ø
Remember Rotational Motion :
Ø
= (ωt)
Ø
= (2πf t)
And therefore:
x = A x cos (2πf t)
And
ω = 2πf
The position of an object undergoing SHM is given by a cosine wave:
+1
x = A x cos (2πf t)
0
T/2
T
The velocity of an object undergoing
SHM is given by the sine wave:
-1
v = -ωA x sin (ω t)
The acceleration of an object undergoing SHM is given by the
cosine wave:
a = -ω2A x cos (ω t)
Example 2
A 0.50 kg mass at the end of a spring completes 8.0 oscillations in 12 s with an
amplitude of 0.26 m
a) What is the velocity of the mass when it passes the equilibrium point?
v =±
v =±
k/m(A2 - x2)
(at equilibrium point x = 0)
k/m(A2 )
f = 1/(2 π)
vmax = A
(m4π2f2)/m
vmax = 0.26
k/m
k = m4π2f2
(4π2(8.0/12)2)
vmax = 1.22 m/s
Or
vmax = A k/m
vmax = A x 2πf = 0.26 x 2 x 3.14 x (8.0/12) = 1.22m/s
18
b) What is the velocity of the mass when it is 0.15 m from equilibrium?
vx = + vmax/A
vx = + 1.09/.26
(A2 - x2)
(0.262 - 0.152)
vx = + 1.09 m/s x 0.8168
vx = + 0.89 m/s
c) What is the total energy of the system?
T.E. = ½ mv2max
T.E. = ½ 0.50 x 1.09 2
= 1.2 J
d) Write the equation describing the motion of the mass, assuming x was a
maximum at t = o?
x = xo cos (ωt)
x = A cos ((2πf)t)
x = 0.26 cos ((1.33π)t)

VII. Pendulums
At small angles of θ (less than 15o) pendulums follow SHM.

Sin θ =
L

And at small angles: sin θ = θ (when in radians)

Fg = mg

L
Let’s look at the forces acting on the pendulum bob.
F = mg sin θ
F = mg sin θ
(At small angle sin ø = ø)
F = mg θ
T
θ
Fg = mg
l
F = mg
L
F = mg
Let :
F = kx
(but l = x)
x
L
constant k = mg/L
And we are back to Hooke’s Law!
Bringing back the Period and frequency equations:
T = 2π
And
m/k
f = 1/2π
k/m
k = mg/L ( for a pendulum)
Therefore:
T = 2π
m/(mg/L)
T = 2π
L/g
Note:
f = 1/2π
mg/Lm
f = 1/2π
g/L
(Cancel out the masses and bring up the L.)
Pendulum Formula for Period
(Cancel out the masses.)
Pendulum Formula for frequency.
Since no mass is present in either formula, the period or frequency
of a pendulum is independent of its mass!
Example 3
a) How long would a pendulum have to be to have a period of 3.5 s on Earth?
T = 2π
L/g
L = (T2g)/(4π2)
L = (3.52 x 9.8 )/(4π2)
= 3.04 m
b) How many oscillations would this pendulum have on the moon in a time of 35 s?
T = 2π
3.04/1.63
# of oscillations = 35 s/8.51 s
= 8.51 s
=
4.11
23
Damped Harmonic Motion
So far we have been dealing with perfect SHM and not considering the real motion of
objects. For example a pendulum amplitude slowly decreases as does an oscillating
mass attached to a spring.
SHM – no damping
Damped Harmonic Motion – the
oscillations slowly decrease and die out
Example:
- shock absorbers in car
- dampeners in bridges
- shocks in bikes
24
DHM can be overdamped, or underdamped or critically damped:
Displacement
Overdamped
- the damping is so large it will take a long time to
reach equilibrium
Critically Damped
- equilibrium is reached in the
shortest time
Underdamped
- the system will swing back and forth a number of
times before coming to rest
Some of the new tall buildings have built in dampeners that will “dampen” or
reduce the vibrations caused by earthquake waves.
In each case the dampening is caused by a force that opposes the original force
that created the force. Often this force is simple friction, either in the system or
generated by the design.
25
Forced Oscillations and Resonance:
Think back to when you were a young child playing on a swing.
Remember the joy you had when you mother pushed you to ever
greater heights. Do you recall the even greater joy of being able to
So how does “pumping your legs work?
How can your Mom with small pushes get you going so high?
Or more importantly, why does your open coffee spill when you
walk across the room with it?
The answer to all of these is resonance and forced oscillations!
All systems have a “natural” frequency at which they will naturally vibrate.
They will create standing waves in the object in question.
26
Demo:
Hang a slink from your hand and watch happens as it falls. It should vibrate up and
down a little before it stops.
If you move your hand up and down just slightly you should have very little effect
on the slinky’s motion. (Try it!).
f << fo
(little or no effect)
Likewise if you move your hand a great deal. The slinky will move at its own
frequency independent of your hand’s motion
f >> fo
(little or no effect)
Now move your hand so that is matches (or comes close to) the natural frequency)
of the slinky. It will start to oscillate with greater and greater amplitude.
f ≈ fo
(large effect)
27
Since dampening causes oscillations to decrease you need to continually input and
external force to have an object vibrate at its natural frequency.
