LINEAR MOTION OF AN
ELASTIC MOTION
A spring resists
being stretched or
compressed.

Hookes Law
When a spring is stretched, there is a
restoring force that is proportional to the
displacement.

m
F = -kx

HOOKE'S LAW
The restoring force of an ideal spring is given by,

## where k is the spring constant and x is the

displacement of the spring from its
unstrained length. The minus sign indicates
that the restoring force always points in a
direction opposite to the displacement of
the spring.

## The force described by Hookes

Law is the net force in Newtons

DISPLACEMENT IN SHM

x = -A

x = +A

## Displacement is positive when the

position is to the right of the equilibrium
position (x = 0) and negative when
located to the left.
The maximum displacement is called
the amplitude A.

## Velocity is positive when moving to

the right and negative when moving
to the left.
It is zero at the end points and a
maximum at the midpoint in either
direction (+ or -).

## Acceleration is in the direction of the

restoring force. (a is positive when x
is negative, and negative when x is
positive.)

Acceleration is a maximum at the end
points and it is zero at the center of
oscillation.

## THE SIMPLE PENDULUM

In order to be in SHM, the restoring
force must be proportional to the
negative of the displacement. Here
we have:
which is proportional to sin and
not to itself.
However, if the angle is small,
sin .

## Therefore, for small angles, we have:

where
The period and frequency are:
