Simple Harmonic Motion NAT Level - 2 - Question 3

Figure shows block 1 of mass 0.2 g sliding to the right over a frictionless elevated surface at a speed of 8 m/s. The block undergoes an elastic collision with stationary block 2, which is attached to a spring of constant 1200 N/m. After the collision, block 2 oscillates in SHM with a period of 0.2 s & block 1 slides off the opposite end of the elevated surface, surface falling height = 6m find the value of d in meters

Simple Harmonic Motion NAT Level - 2 - Question 7

What is the phase constant in degrees for the harmonic oscillator with the velocity function V(f) given in figure if the position function x(t) has the form The vertical axis scale is set by Vs = 4 cm /s


Detailed Solution for Simple Harmonic Motion NAT Level - 2 - Question 7

  where → amplitude of oscillator 
Vm = 5 cm/s since Vs= 4 cm/s

from the graph, at t = 0, v = 4 cm/s

If we take ,acceleration would be positive but from the graph since the v is decreasing at
t = 0
∴ the acceleration should be negative!
∴ Ø = 53°
The correct answer is: 53

Simple Harmonic Motion NAT Level - 2 - Question 8

For a simple pendulum, find the angular displacement at which the restoring torque required for simple harmonic motion deviates from the actual restoring torque by 2% use g = 10m/s2 . (θ in degrees).


Detailed Solution for Simple Harmonic Motion NAT Level - 2 - Question 8

The restoring torque on the bob of the pendulum at an angle with the vertical is given by

We apply small angle approximation to so that the motion can be followed as simple harmonic motion, the torque becomes

The problem requires to find the value of 9 for which

Write the taylor expansion of Sin θ

Taking absolute value on both sides

The correct answer is: 19.65

Simple Harmonic Motion NAT Level - 2 - Question 9


A particle of mass m moves in the potential shown above find the period of the motion when the particle has energy E. (in terms of 


Detailed Solution for Simple Harmonic Motion NAT Level - 2 - Question 9

For the simple harmonic oscillator (SHO) part,

Since the graph shows only half of the usual SHO potential, the period contribution from the SHO part should be half the usual period

For the gravitational potential, one can calculate the period from the usual kinematics equation for constant acceleration

Since E is always conserved

At the end point  
x = Elm g

Since the particle has to travel from the origin to the right end point & then back again the total time contribution is twice

The correct answer is: 2
