Figure 5.2 shows a spring undergoing simple harmonic motion. The points y=A_{0 }and y=-A_{0 }are the endpoints of the spring’s motion. Let y=0 be the equilibrium position with the mass attached to the spring. (a) At what point is the magnitude of the velocity the largest? (b) At which points is its velocity zero? (c) At which points is the magnitude of the acceleration the largest? (d) At which point is it’s acceleration zero?

Step 1

a)

Oscillation of spring is a simple harmonic motion.

The equation for velocity of simple harmonic motion is,

Step 2

It can be seen that the velocity has maximum value when *x=*0.It means that velocity will be maximum at the equilibrium position.

Answer: velocity has maximum magnitude at the equilibrium position.

Step 3

b)

From the equation in part (a), it can be seen that the velocity is zero when *x=A*. It means that velocity wi...
