## 10.2.5 Example Spring (k=9 N/m) - Mass (m=1 kg) model x0=0, v0 =6 Position versus time JavaScript HTML5 Applet Simulation Model  SHM11

### 1.2.5 Example The graphs show how the variation with time of the velocity, v and the acceleration, a of a body when it is oscillating with simple harmonic motion.
(a)    Determine the period, T.
(b)    Sketch the variation with time of the displacement, x, of the oscillating body
[ 2.09 s, x = 2  sin( 3t )]

## ### 1.2.5.1 Solution:

a) maximum velocity , v0 = x0ω = 6 m/s

maximum acceleration a0 = x0ω2 = 18 m/s2

thus dividing the 2 equations, we get ω = 3 rad/s

therefore since $\omega =\genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{2\pi }{T}$

$3=\genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{2\pi }{T}$

$T=\genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{2\pi }{3}$

$T=2.09s$

b) since maximum velocity , v0 = x0ω = 6 m/s and we now know ω = 3 rad/s earlier

x0(3) = 6

x0 = 2 m ### Translations
