Case Study Questions:

Question 1:

Simple Harmonic Motion

Simple harmonic motion is the simplest form of oscillation. A particular type of periodic motion in which a particle moves to and fro repeatedly about a mean position under the influence of a restoring force is termed as simple harmonic motion (S.H.M).

A body is undergoing simple harmonic motion if it has an acceleration which is directed towards a fixed point, and proportional to the displacement of the body from that point.

1. Which of the following is not a characteristic of simple harmonic motion?

(a) The motion is periodic.

(b) The motion is along a straight line about the mean position.

(c) The oscillations are responsible for the energy conversion.

(d) The acceleration of the particle is directed towards the extreme position.

2. The equation of motion of a simple harmonic motion is

3. Which of the following expressions does not represent simple harmonic motion?

(a) x = Acoswt + Bsinwt

(b) x = Acos(wt + a)

(c) x = Bsin(wt + b)

(d) x = Asinwt cos2wt

4. The time period of simple harmonic motion depends upon

(a) amplitude

(b) energy

(c) phase constant

(d) mass

5. Which of the following motions is not simple harmonic?

(a) Vertical oscillations of a spring

(b) Motion of a simple pendulum

(c) Motion of planet around the Sun

(d) Oscillation of liquid in a U-tube
