# Draw a graph to show the variation of P.E., K.E. and total energy of a simple harmonic oscillator with displacement.

Answer :

Total energy of S.H.M is constant, ∴ we get a straight line

Kinetic energy for the simple harmonic motion is given as,

where x = displacement

ω = angular velocity

m = mass of the system

a = amplitude

the above equation is an equation of the downward opening parabola symmetric along y-axis and vertex at on y-axis

Potential energy for the simple harmonic motion is given as,

where x = displacement

ω = angular velocity

m= mass of the system

a = amplitude

the above equation is an equation of the upward opening parabola symmetric along y-axis and vertex at (0,0) on y-axis

∴ following is the graph we get,

Time period of a particle in SHM depends on the force constant k and mass m of the particle:

. A simple pendulum executes SHM approximately. Why then is the time period of a pendulum independent of the mass of the pendulum?

NCERT - Physics Part-IIThe motion of a particle executing simple harmonic motion is described by the displacement function,

If the initial (t = 0) position of the particle is 1 cm and its initial velocity is ω cm/s, what are its amplitude and initial phase angle? The angular frequency of the particle is π s^{–1}. If instead of the cosine function, we choose the sine function to describe the SHM x = B sin (ωt + α), what are the amplitude and initial phase of the particle with the above initial conditions.
