An astronaut is motionless in outer space. Upon command, his propulsion unit strapped to his back ejects some gas with a velocity of
Examplep p pp j g y+14 m/s, and the astronaut recoils with a velocity of -0.5m/s. After the gas is ejected, the mass of the astronaut is 160kg. What is the mass of the ejected gas? If the mass is ejected in 2 s, what is the thrust force and the average rate of emitted gas m/t? (Hint treat thrust as the average force acting over t.)

P i di ill t ti i ti th t tl t it lf ft Periodic or oscillatory motion is motion that exactly repeats itself after a certain amount of time T has elapsed.
This time T is called the period. The number of times the motion repeats itself in a second is call the
frequency. Examples of systems that display periodic motion.

Simple Harmonic Motion is a common form of periodic motion.
Springs and simple harmonic motion
Consider the mass and spring system to the right. The system is at equilibrium at x=0.
This is an example of stable equilibrium. If an s s a e a p e o s ab e equ b u . aobject is in equilibrium then the net force on it is zero. If you displace an object away from a stable equilibrium there will be a force p shing it back in the opposite direction of thepushing it back in the opposite direction of the displacement.
When the equilibrium is stable, the force around equilibrium often depends linearly onaround equilibrium often depends linearly on displacement. For the spring, this gives rise to the Hookes law force: kxFs =
If you displace the mass away from equilibrium by an amount x0 =A, the mass will oscillate about the minimum.
This oscillation is an example of Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM) This oscillation is an example of Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM)

Review problem: Hookes law
I th t i 2 44 hi h i ( t i d l th 0 30 ) In a room that is 2.44 m high, a spring (unstrained length=0.30 m) hangs from the ceiling. From this spring, a board hangs so that its 1.98 m length is perpendicular to the floor, the lower end just extending to, but not touching the floor The board weighs 102 N What is thebut not touching, the floor. The board weighs 102 N. What is the spring constant of the spring?

Vertical vs. horizontal oscillations

The only thing gravity does is displace the equilibrium point a distance L=mg/k downwards.
A Mass moves with Simple Harmonic Motion: Not that increasing the amplitude A only increases the
displacement from the equilibrium point at x=0.
