Physics 1251The Science and Technology of Musical SoundUnit 1Session 5 Simple Harmonic Oscillators

Physics 1251 Unit 1 Session 5Simple Harmonic OscillatorsFoolscap Quiz: What is the wavelength of a C4 (262. Hz) at room temperature? Frequency = 262. Hz; velocity = 343. m/s v = f = (262. Hz) = 343. m/s = (343. m/s) / (262. Hz) = 1.3091603 m = 1.31 m (3 significant figures)

Physics 1251 Unit 1 Session 5 Simple Harmonic Oscillators

An oscillation of a body causes a sound.

Physics 1251 Unit 1 Session 5Simple Harmonic Oscillators1 Lecture:A Simple Harmonic Oscillator is a device that oscillates at one frequency, determined by the spring constant k and the mass m of the system.The natural frequency of an SHO is related to these quantities by the equation:

f = 1/(2) (k/m)

Physics 1251 Unit 1 Session 5 Simple Harmonic OscillatorsExistential Physics Questions:What happens when you stretch a spring?What happens if you stretch the spring twice as much? Or three times as much?What is a spring?What has this got to with acoustics?

Physics 1251 Unit 1 Session 5 Simple Harmonic OscillatorsHookes LawWhen you stretch or compress a spring, the force (F) produced is proportional to the displacement (x) and in the direction to restore the system (-) to the original position.

Physics 1251 Unit 1 Session 5 Simple Harmonic OscillatorsSpring Constant kThe restoring force produced by a spring is proportional to the negative of its extension (or compression).

F = - k x (Hookes Law)F : restoring forcek: spring constantx: extension, the stretch or squeeze (if negative).What is the restoring force of a spring with k =25. N/m when it is stretch by 10 cm?F = - (25. N/m )(0.10 m) = -2.5 N

Physics 1251 Unit 1 Session 5 Simple Harmonic OscillatorsIf mass = 0.500 kg and k = 25.0 N/m, what will be the frequency of oscillation? What will be the period? f = 1/(2) (k/m) =1/(2) [(25.0 N/m)/(0.500 kg)]= 0.1592 [50.0] = 1.13 HzP = 1/ f = 1/ (1.13 Hz) = 0.885 sec

Physics 1251 Unit 1 Session 5 Simple Harmonic OscillatorsIf we increase the mass from 0.5 kg to 1.0 kg what will happen to the frequency? Will it increase, decrease or stay the same?If it changes, by how much will it change?f = 1/(2) (k/m)f (1/m) f2 / f1 = (m1 /m2 ) = (0.5/1.0) ) = (0.50) =0.71

Physics 1251 Unit 1 Session 5 Simple Harmonic OscillatorsIf we double the springs what will happen to the frequency? Will it increase, decrease or stay the same?If it changes, by how much will it change?f = 1/(2)(k/m)f k f2 / f1 = (k2 /k1 ) = (50./25.) ) = (2.0) =1.41
