QUESTION 1
A mass of 100 grams is attached to a spring whose constant is 1600 dynes/cm.
After the mass reaches equilibrium, its support oscillates according to the formula
h(t) = sin 8t, where h represents displacement from its original position.
(a) In the absence of damping, determine the equation of motion if the mass
starts from rest from the equilibrium position.
(b) At what times does the mass pass through the equilibrium position?
(c) At what times does the mass attain its extreme displacements?
(d) What are the maximum and minimum displacements?
(e) Graph the equation of motion.
