to atomic bonds in quantum physics to bridges blowing the wind, physical system

s often act like oscillators when they are displaced from stable equilibria.

In this experiment you will observe the behavior of a simple sort of oscillator:

the torsion pendulum. In general a torsion pendulum is an object that has oscil

lations which are due to rotations about some axis through the object. This appa

ratus allows for exploring both damped oscillations and forced oscillations.

2 Theory

Note that angular frequency (? in rad/s) and frequency (f in Hz.) are not the sa

me. Most the equations below concern ?, in many cases it is easier to measure f.

In the damped case, the torque balance for the torsion pendulum yields the diffe

rential equation:

d2?- d?

J dt2 + bdt +c? = 0

(1)

where J is the moment of inertia of the pendulum, b is the damping coefficient,

c is the restoring torque constant, and ? is the angle of rotation [?]. This equ

ation can be rewritten in the standard form [?]:

? ? 2

?+ 2? + ?0? = 0,

(2)

where the damping constant is = -b

2J and the natural frequency is ?0 = c-

J. The general solution to this differential equations is:

v ----- v -----

?(t) = e-t[A e 2-?20t + A e- 2- ?02t],

1 2

(3)

with three different types of solutions possible depending on the relationships

between ?0 and .

In the underdamped case ( < ?0):

?(t) = ?0e-tcos(?1t- ?)

(4)

with the oscillation frequency ?1 = -------

?20 - 2, initial amplitude ?0, and phase ?.

In the critically damped case ( = ?0):

?(t) = (A+ Bt )e-t.

(5)

In the overdamped case ( > ?0):

?(t) = e-t[A1e?2t + A2e-?2t],

(6)

where ?2 = 2---2-

- ?0.

For the forced oscillation case, an external torque is added to Equation 1:

d2? d?

J-dt2 + bdt + c? = t0sin(wt),

(7)

where ? is the driving frequency and t0 is the driving torque [?]. The general s

olution to the differential equation is the sum of the homogeneous solutions (wh

ich are the solutions to the damped case above) plus a particular solution. The

particular solution has the form:

?(t) = ?m(w )sin(wt - ? )

(8)

with

? (? ) =---------t0---------

m J (?20 - ?2)2 + (b?/J )2

(9)

In this case the resonance frequency is ?r = --------

?20 + 22 and the phase shift between the pendulum and the external oscillator i

s:

tan? = --2?--

?20 - ?2

3 Equipment

In this experiment you will use the torsion pendulum, the power supply for the d

riving motor, a low voltage power supply for the eddy current damper, two digita

l multimeters, and a stop watch.

Figure 1 shows the torsion pendulum and associated electronics. The motor which

is used to force the pendulum (which will only be used in the second half of the

experiment) is shown on the left of the diagram. The eddy current damping devic

e is shown on the bottom of the diagram.

3.1 Notes on the Torsion Pendulum

Do not forget to consider uncertainties in your measurements and calculations.

Do not allow the current through the eddy current damper to exceed 2 A.

Do not leave the current above 1 A for very long.

The units on for the angle on the pendulum are not standard. Make up a name for

the units and stick with it.

Take the moment of inertia, J, of the torsion pendulum to be 3.0 ? 0.1 kg m2.

4 Data collection

The instructions below assume that you will collect data bye eye, but you can al

so use video capture to collect the data. The torsion pendulum data can also be

taken by video capture, either using the camera attached to the Raspberry Pi in

PE 132, or with your own cell phone. Then the files can be analyzed using Tracke

r (https://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/).

4.1 Video collection with Raspberry Pi camera

Set up the pendulum with a white background behind it, and light it well. Log in

to the Raspberry Pi, and run the video capture software using a command like the

one below:

raspivid -w 640 -h 480 -fps 5 -t 10000 -o pend_jc1.h264

The command is raspivid, the -w and-h options set the width and height of the vi

deo, th -fps sets the frame rate in frame per second, -t sets the length of the

video in microseconds, and -o sets the name of the output h264 video file.

After creating the video files, you can transfer them to the Linux computer yalo

w, by copying them to /var/yalow. Once copied there, they will show up on yalow

under /backup. From there, you will need to change the files into mp4 format, so

that Tracker can use them:

avconv -i pend_jc1.h264 -c copy -r 5 pend_jc1.mp4

This command changes the h264 file into an mp4 file, which tracker can deal with

. The command avconv can do fancier things like change the frame rate or size of

the image as well. (A similar command called ffmpeg is available on the regular

Linux computers.)
