Definition of SHM The motion of the particle whose acceleration a is always directed towards a fixed point and is directly proportional to the distance x of the particle form that point. where ωis a constant, the angular frequency.

Examples of SHM The particle is at the position x = 0.
It has a velocity to the right. V x = 0

Examples of SHM The particle moves to the right with retardation a.
Note that x and a are in opposite directions. a x x =A A A is the maximum distance, the amplitude.

Examples of SHM The position x = 0 is the equilibrium position at which the net force is zero. x V a In the oscillation, The negative sign indicates the direction of a is opposite to that of x.

Example 1 Is it a SHM? a = -16.x

Differential equation of SHM

The kinematics of SHM Displacement x of a SHM.
A solution of the differential equation is x = A.sin(ωt + ψ) t is the time, ωis the angular frequency, A is the amplitude and ψis the initial phase.

The kinematics of SHM If ψ=0  x = A.sin (ωt)
Displacement x = A.sin(ωt + ψ) of a SHM. The displacement x of a particle performing SHM changes sinusoidally with time t. The period of the SHM is Displacement x t A -A T 2T 3T time If ψ=0  x = A.sin (ωt)

Phase and Initial Phase
x = A.sin(ωt + ψ) ωt + ψis called the phase. At t = 0, phase reduces to ψ. x = A.sin(ψ) ψis called the initial phase.

Phase x = A.sin(ωt + ψ) If ψ=0, x = A.sin(ωt )
If ψ= π/2, x = A.cos(ωt ) If ψ= π, x = -A.sin(ωt ) etc.

Initial Phase ψ The value of ψis determined by the initial position of x (at t = 0). i.e. how the motion is started.

ψ= 0 x = A.sin(ωt) At t = 0, x = 0. The motion starts at x = 0.
In the first T/4, x increases with time t and approaches the amplitude A. x = 0 V At t = 0 a

ψ= 0 x = A.sin(ωt) At t = 0, x = 0. The motion starts at x = 0.
In the first T/4, x increases with time t and approaches the amplitude A. Displacement x time t A -A T 2T 3T

ψ= π/2 x = A.cos(ωt) At t = 0, x = A. The motion starts at x = A.
In the first T/4, x decreases with time t and approaches 0. x = A v = 0 At t = 0 a

ψ= π/2 x = A.cos(ωt) At t = 0, x = A. The motion starts at x = A.
In the first T/4, x decreases with time t and approaches 0. Displacement x time t A -A T 2T 3T

ψ= π x = -A.sin(ωt) At t = 0, x = 0. The motion starts at x = 0.

ψ= π x = -A.sin(ωt) At t = 0, x = 0. The motion starts at x = 0.
In the first T/4, x decreases with time t and approaches -A. Displacement x time t A -A T 2T 3T

ψ= 2π/3 x = -A.cos(ωt) At t = 0, x = -A. The motion starts at x = -A.
In the first T/4, x increases with time t and approaches 0. x = -A v=0 At t = 0 a

ψ= 2π/3 x = -A.cos(ωt) At t = 0, x = -A. The motion starts at x = -A.
In the first T/4, x increases with time t and approaches 0. Displacement x time t A -A T 2T 3T

Angular frequency ω Period T = time for one complete oscillation.
Frequency f = number of oscillations in one second. Angular frequency = 2f

Angular frequency ω In a SHM, x = A.sin(ωt+ψ)
After a time T, x must be the same again. A.sin(ωt+ψ) = A.sin(ωt+ ωT +ψ) ωT = 2π Unit of ω is rad s-1

Damped Oscillation There is loss of energy in this kind of oscillation due to friction or resistance. As a result, the amplitude decreases with time. There are Slightly damping Critical damping Heavy damping

Slightly damping The amplitude decreases exponentially with time.
An = A1.n where  is a constant

Critical damping The system does not oscillate but comes to rest at the shortest possible time. e.g. galvanometer Displacement x time t T 2T

Heavy damping The resistive force is very large. The system returns very slowly to the equilibrium position. Displacement x time t T 2T

Example 12 Slightly damping

Forced oscillations hand vibrating up and down The vibrating system is acted upon by an external periodic driving force. The system is vibrating at the frequency of the external force. Without the external driving force, the frequency of free oscillation is called natural frequency. With the external periodic driving force, the amplitude of vibration varies

Forced oscillations The amplitude of a forced oscillation depends on
hand vibrating up and down The amplitude of a forced oscillation depends on damping frequency of the driving force

Forced oscillations hand vibrating up and down The amplitude of a forced oscillation is a maximum when the frequency of the driving force is equal to the natural frequency fo of the system Amplitude Driving frequency no damping slight damping heavy damping fo
