5  When an elastic object is deformed, it experiences a restoring force. ◦ Elastic means that it is capable of returning to its original shape/size. ◦ Includes springs, plastic rulers, rubber bands, guitar strings, etc.  The restoring force is given by Hooke’s Law

6  The force constant, k, is related to the rigidity (or stiffness) of a system.  Larger k  greater restoring force  stiffer system  Measured in N/m  The slope of a Force vs. Displacement graph (if the graph is linear)


8  What is the force constant for the suspension system of a car that settles 1.20 cm when an 80.0 kg person gets in?

10  Work must be done in any deformation.  Assuming no energy is lost to heat, sound, etc., then all work is transferred to potential energy.  Since the force increases linearly with displacement, we can easily calculate the potential energy.

76  Friction is not always negligible.  Damping is the slowing and stopping of oscillations, caused by a non-conservative force (such as friction).  Damping is sometimes part of a design (such as a car’s shock absorbers).  For small damping, the amplitude slowly decreases while period and frequency are nearly unchanged.

77  Non-conservative work removes mechanical energy (usually to thermal energy).

78  Large damping causes the period to increase and the frequency to decrease.  Very large damping prevents oscillation – the system just returns to equilibrium.  Critical damping is the amount of damping that returns a system to equilibrium as quickly as possible.  Overdamped systems return to equilibrium slower than critical damping.

87  The natural frequency is the frequency at which it would oscillate if there were no driving and no damping force.  If you drive a system at a frequency equal to its natural frequency, its amplitude will increase. This is called resonance. ◦ A system being driven at its natural frequency is said to resonate.

99  A wave is a disturbance that propagates, or moves from the place it was created.  Waves carry energy, not matter.  Similar to simple harmonic motion, waves have a period, frequency, and amplitude.  Waves also have a wave velocity, the velocity at which the disturbance moves.  Waves also have a wavelength, λ, the distance between identical parts of the wave.

107  Most real-world waves are combinations of simple waves.  When two or more waves arrive at the same point, their disturbances are added together. This is called superposition.  In constructive interference, crest meets crest, and trough meets trough, and the resultant is a wave with a larger amplitude.  In destructive interference, crest meets trough, and resulting amplitude is smaller than either original amplitude. ◦ Amplitude is zero for pure destructive interference.

115  Green dots are nodes

116  The fundamental frequency is the lowest possible frequency for a standing wave.  Overtones or harmonics are multiples of the fundamental frequency.
