A body moves in a simple harmonic motion and the following graph gives the variation of its displacement x with time t.
a) Write an equation to represent the given simple harmonic motion.
b) Find the time duration in the first cycle when the body is located above a displacement of 0.25 m.
[ x = xo sin (1.05 t) , Δt = 1.9 s ]
The hint can be found in the model
a) x0 = 0.5 m
ω = 1.05
x = x0sin(ω t) = 0.5 sin(1.05t)
b) At x = 0.25 m,
substituting back into the equation,
0.25 = 0.5 sin(1.05t)
solving for t gives
0.5 = sin(1.05t)
solving of the ranging of time, t
1.05t = 0.524 and π - 0.524
t1 = 0.5 , t2 = 2.4 s
looking at the graphical form of the solution of the 2 times, t1 and t2.
giving the range to be t2 - t1 = 2.4 - 1.5 = 1.9 s
