MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

The function $${\sin ^2}\left( {\omega t} \right)$$ represents

A

a periodic, but not $$SHM$$ with a period $${\pi \over \omega }$$

B

a periodic, but not $$SHM$$ with a period $${{2\pi } \over \omega }$$

C

a $$SHM$$ with a period $${\pi \over \omega }$$

D

a $$SHM$$ with a period $${{2\pi } \over \omega }$$

y = sin^{2}$$\omega $$t

= $${{1 - \cos 2\omega t} \over 2}$$

$$ = {1 \over 2} - {1 \over 2}\cos \,2\omega t$$

$$ \therefore $$ Angular speed = 2$$\omega $$

$$ \therefore $$ Period (T) = $${{2\pi } \over {angular\,speed}}$$ = $${{2\pi } \over {2\omega }}$$ = $${\pi \over \omega }$$

So it is a periodic function.

As y = sin^{2}$$\omega $$t

$${{dy} \over {dt}}$$ = 2$$\omega $$sin$$\omega $$t cos$$\omega $$t = $$\omega $$ sin2$$\omega $$t

$${{{d^2}y} \over {d{t^2}}}$$ = $$2{\omega ^2}$$ cos2$$\omega $$t which is not proportional to -y.

Hence it is is not SHM.

= $${{1 - \cos 2\omega t} \over 2}$$

$$ = {1 \over 2} - {1 \over 2}\cos \,2\omega t$$

$$ \therefore $$ Angular speed = 2$$\omega $$

$$ \therefore $$ Period (T) = $${{2\pi } \over {angular\,speed}}$$ = $${{2\pi } \over {2\omega }}$$ = $${\pi \over \omega }$$

So it is a periodic function.

As y = sin

$${{dy} \over {dt}}$$ = 2$$\omega $$sin$$\omega $$t cos$$\omega $$t = $$\omega $$ sin2$$\omega $$t

$${{{d^2}y} \over {d{t^2}}}$$ = $$2{\omega ^2}$$ cos2$$\omega $$t which is not proportional to -y.

Hence it is is not SHM.

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

In forced oscillation of a particle the amplitude is maximum for a frequency $${\omega _1}$$ of the force while the energy is maximum for a frequency $${\omega _2}$$ of the force; then

A

$${\omega _1} < {\omega _2}$$ when damping is small and $${\omega _1} > {\omega _2}$$ when damping is large

B

$${\omega _1} > {\omega _2}$$

C

$${\omega _1} = {\omega _2}$$

D

$${\omega _1} < {\omega _2}$$

The maximum of amplitude and energy is obtained when the frequency is equal to the natural frequency (resonance condition)

$$\therefore$$ $${\omega _1} = {\omega _2}$$

$$\therefore$$ $${\omega _1} = {\omega _2}$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

A particle of mass $$m$$ is attached to a spring (of spring constant $$k$$) and has a natural angular frequency $${\omega _0}.$$ An external force $$F(t)$$ proportional to $$\cos \,\omega t\left( {\omega \ne {\omega _0}} \right)$$ is applied to the oscillator. The time displacement of the oscillator will be proportional to

A

$${1 \over {m\left( {\omega _0^2 + {\omega ^2}} \right)}}$$

B

$${1 \over {m\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)}}$$

C

$${m \over {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}}}$$

D

$${m \over {\omega _0^2 + {\omega ^2}}}$$

Given that, initial angular velocity = $${\omega _0}$$

and at any instant time t, angular velocity = $$\omega $$

So when displacement is x then the resultant acceleration

f = $$\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)x$$

So the external force, F = $$m\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)x$$ ............(i)

But given that $$F \propto \cos \omega t$$

From (i) we get,

$$m\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)x \propto \cos \omega t$$ .........(ii)

From equation of SHM we know,

$$x = A\sin \left( {\omega t + \phi } \right)$$

When t = 0 then x = A

$$\therefore$$ A = $$A\sin \left( \phi \right)$$

$$ \Rightarrow A = {\pi \over 2}$$

$$\therefore$$ $$x = A\sin \left( {\omega t + {\pi \over 2}} \right) = A\cos \omega t$$

Putting value of x in (ii), we get

$$m\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)A\cos \omega t \propto \cos \omega t$$

$$ \Rightarrow A \propto {1 \over {m\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)}}$$

and at any instant time t, angular velocity = $$\omega $$

So when displacement is x then the resultant acceleration

f = $$\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)x$$

So the external force, F = $$m\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)x$$ ............(i)

But given that $$F \propto \cos \omega t$$

From (i) we get,

$$m\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)x \propto \cos \omega t$$ .........(ii)

From equation of SHM we know,

$$x = A\sin \left( {\omega t + \phi } \right)$$

When t = 0 then x = A

$$\therefore$$ A = $$A\sin \left( \phi \right)$$

$$ \Rightarrow A = {\pi \over 2}$$

$$\therefore$$ $$x = A\sin \left( {\omega t + {\pi \over 2}} \right) = A\cos \omega t$$

Putting value of x in (ii), we get

$$m\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)A\cos \omega t \propto \cos \omega t$$

$$ \Rightarrow A \propto {1 \over {m\left( {\omega _0^2 - {\omega ^2}} \right)}}$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

The total energy of particle, executing simple harmonic motion is

A

independent of $$x$$

B

$$ \propto \,{x^2}$$

C

$$ \propto \,x$$

D

$$ \propto \,{x^{1/2}}$$

At any instant the total energy is

$${1 \over 2}k{A^2} = \,\,$$ constant, where $$A=$$ amplitude

hence total energy is independent of $$x.$$

$${1 \over 2}k{A^2} = \,\,$$ constant, where $$A=$$ amplitude

hence total energy is independent of $$x.$$
