A 5.5 kg cat is attached to a fixed horizontal spring of stiffness 22.8 N/m and is set in motion on a frictionless surface. Find the period of motion of… …the cat. …a 240 g mouse, with the same spring and surface. = 3.1 s = 0.64 s
= 0.99 N/m What stiffness must a spring have so that the period of the mouses motion is the same as that of the cat? Ballpark answer: Need a less stiff spring; k < 22.8 N/m.

restoring force: simple harmonic motion (SHM): For a mass-spring system, Hookes law applies: acts to move an object back to equilibrium F restore x F restore = F elas = k x As displacement increases, so does F restore. And when x = 0… F restore = 0.
KE = ½ m v 2 energy: kinetic energy, KE: energy of mass m having velocity v m (kg); v (m/s) the ability to do work KE = max. at eq. pos.; KE = 0 at x max.
PE elas = ½ k ( x) 2 potential energy, PE: stored energy For a spring with spring constant k and stretch x: k (N/m); x (m) For a mass m at a height h above a reference line: m (kg); h (m); g = 9.81 m/s 2 For m-s sys., PE elas is max at x max and 0 at eq. pos. PE g = m g h For pend., PE g is max at x max and min. at eq. pos.

Waves vibrations moving through space and time medium: the matter through which the energy of mechanical waves moves Waves transmit energy, not matter.
transverse waves: particles of medium move to direction of wave travel For a transverse wave: amplitude A crest wavelength trough Energy Amplitude 2
longitudinal (compressional) wave: particles of medium move // to direction of wave travel rarefaction compression pulse wave: periodic wave: a single vibration rhythmic, repeated vibrations
Wave Reflection fixed boundary free boundary v v v v A A waves are reflected and inverted waves are reflected and upright
Wave Interference Two waves (unlike two objects) can occupy the same place at the same time. This condition is called interference. constructive interference:destructive interference: displacements are in same direction displacements are in opposite directions A1A1 A2A2 A 1 + A 2 A1A1 A2A2 A2A2 A1A1 A 1 – A 2 A2A2 A1A1
= 1.8 m/s Wave Velocity Equation: v (m/s); (m); T (s); f (Hz) A water wave of wavelength 8.5 m washes past a boat at anchor every 4.75 seconds. Find the waves velocity.
v sound = T a The velocity of any mechanical wave depends only on properties of medium through which it travels. e.g.,string tension, water depth, air temperature, material density, type of material An empirical equation for the velocity of sound in air: T a = air temp. in o C
Standing Waves incident and reflected waves interfere so that antinodes have a max. amplitude, while nodes have zero amplitude On a string, nodes remain motionless; antinodes go from max. (+) to max. (–) displacement.
