4 Oscillatory Motion and Waves
OpenStax Chapter 16

5 Hooke’s Law Revisited 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 Force Constant 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 You-Try 16.1 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?

9 You-Try 16.1 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? 6.53x104 N/m

10 Energy in Hooke’s Law 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.

11 Work  Potential Energy

30 Simple Harmonic Motion: A Special Periodic Motion
OpenStax section 16.3 AP Physics 1

31 Simple Harmonic Motion
Simple harmonic motion is oscillatory motion for a system where the net force can be described by Hooke’s Law. Pendulums are sometimes considered simple harmonic motion – only for small angles. Equal/symmetric displacement on either side of the equilibrium position. The maximum displacement from equilibrium is called the amplitude.

32 Simple Harmonic Motion Example

33 Importance of SHM Period and frequency are independent of amplitude, so simple harmonic oscillators can be used as clocks. They are a good analogue for waves, including invisible ones (sound, electromagnetic)

34 Period and Frequency For simple harmonic oscillators:
What do period and frequency not depend on?

35 You-Try 16.4 If the shock absorbers in a car go bad, then the car will oscillate at the least provocation, such as when going over bumps in the road and after stopping.

65 You-Try 36 Near the top of the Citigroup Center building in New York City, there is an object with mass of 4.00x105 kg on springs that have adjustable force constants.

If the spring stretches m while supporting an 8.00 kg child, what is its spring constant? What is the time for one complete bounce? What is the child’s maximum velocity if the amplitude of her bounce is m?

74 Homework Questions?

75 Damped Harmonic Motion
OpenStax Section 16.7 AP Physics 1

76 Friction is Real! 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 Damping Non-conservative work removes mechanical energy (usually to thermal energy).

78 Large Damping 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.

85 Forced Oscillations and Resonance
OpenStax section 16.8 AP Physics 1

86 Think-Pair-Share What do you have to do to swing high on a swing?

87 Natural Frequency 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.

88 Resonance The highest amplitude oscillations occur when:
The system is driven at its natural frequency There is minimal damping

98 OpenStax section 16.9 AP Physics 1
Waves OpenStax section 16.9 AP Physics 1

99 Waves 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.

100 Example Wave

101 Wave Speed

102 You-Try 16.8 Calculate the wave velocity of an ocean wave if the distance between wave crests is 10.0 m and the time for a sea gull to bob up and down is 5.00 s. 2.00 m/s

103 Transverse vs. Longitudinal

104 Transverse vs. Longitudinal
In transverse waves, also called shear waves, the direction of energy transfer and the direction of displacement are perpendicular. Examples: strings on musical instruments, light In longitudinal waves, also called compressional waves, the direction of energy transfer and the direction of displacement are parallel. Example: sound Some waves, such as ocean waves, are a combination of transverse and longitudinal.

105 You-Try 52 What is the wavelength of the waves you create in a swimming pool if you splash your hand at a rate of 2.00 Hz and the waves propagate at m/s?

106 Superposition and Interference
OpenStax section 16.10 AP Physics 1

107 Superposition 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.

108 Pure Constructive Interference

109 Pure Destructive Interference

110 PhET Waves on a String wave-on-a-string_en.jar


112 Warm-Up: February 6, 2015 Radio waves transmitted through space at 3.00x108 m/s by the Voyager spacecraft have a wavelength of m. What is their frequency?

113 More Superposition

114 Standing Waves Sometimes waves superimpose in a way that causes an apparent lack of sideways motion. These waves are called standing waves. Standing waves have points that do not move, called nodes. The points that move the most are called antinodes.

115 PhET Wave on a String Green dots are nodes

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

117 Overtones

118 Beats The superposition of two waves of similar frequency has a frequency that is the average of the two. This wave fluctuates in amplitude, or beats, in the beat frequency.

119 You-Try 58 The middle-C hammer of a piano hits two strings, producing beats of 1.50 Hz. One of the strings is tuned to Hz. What frequencies could the other string have?

120 You-Try 60 Twin jet engines on an airplane are producing an average sound frequency of Hz with a beat frequency of Hz. What are their individual frequencies?


122 Energy in Waves: Intensity
OpenStax section 16.11 AP Physics 1

123 Wave Energy Wave energy is related to wave amplitude
The intensity, I, of a wave is the power, P, carried through area A.

124 Intensity Valid for any flow of energy. Has units of W/m2.
Other intensity units include decibels. 90 decibel = 10-3 W/m2

125 You-Try 16.9 The average intensity of sunlight on Earth’s surface is about 700. W/m2. Calculate the amount of energy that falls on a solar collector having an area of m2 in 4.00 hours. What intensity would such sunlight have if concentrated by a magnifying glass onto an area 200. times smaller than its own?


127 Warm-Up: February 9, 2015 If two identical waves, each having an intensity of 1.00 W/m2, interfere perfectly constructively, what is the intensity of the resulting wave?
