AIEEE 2005

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Two simple harmonic motions are represented by the equations $${y_1} = 0.1\,\sin \left( {100\pi t + {\pi \over 3}} \right)$$ and $${y_2} = 0.1\,\cos \,\pi t.$$ The phase difference of the velocity of particle $$1$$ with respect to the velocity of particle $$2$$ is
A
$${\pi \over 3}$$
B
$${{ - \pi } \over 6}$$
C
$${\pi \over 6}$$
D
$${{ - \pi } \over 3}$$

Explanation

$${v_1} = {{d{y_1}} \over {dt}} = 0.1 \times 100\pi \cos \left( {100\pi t + {\pi \over 3}} \right)$$

$${v_2} = {{d{y_2}} \over {dt}} = - 0.1\pi sin\pi t = 0.1\pi cos\left( {\pi t + {\pi \over 2}} \right)$$

$$\therefore$$ Phase diff. $$ = {\phi _1} - {\phi _2} = {\pi \over 3} - {\pi \over 2} = {{2\pi - 3\pi } \over 6} = {\pi \over 6}$$

AIEEE 2005

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 $${{2\pi } \over \omega }$$

Explanation

y = sin2$$\omega $$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 = sin2$$\omega $$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.

AIEEE 2004

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

Explanation

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

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

AIEEE 2004

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

Explanation

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

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

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