OscillationEdit

Oscillation refers to any Periodic Motion moving at a distance about the equilibrium position and repeat itself over and over for a period of time . Example The Oscillation up and down of a Spring , The Oscillation side by side of a Spring. The Oscillation swinging side by side of a pendulum

Spring's OscillationEdit

Up and down OscillationEdit

When apply a force on an object of mass attach to a spring . The spring will move a distance y above and below the equilibrium point and this movement keeps on repeating itself for a period of time . The movement up and down of spring for a period of time is called Oscillation

Any force acting on an object can be expressed in a differential equation

Equilibrium is reached when

F = - Fy



Side by Side Oscillation of SpringEdit

When apply a force on an object of mass attach to a spring . The spring will move a distance x above and below the equilibrium point and this movement keeps on repeating itself for a period of time . The movement up and down of spring for a period of time is called Oscillation

Any force acting on an object can be expressed in a differential equation

Equilibrium is reached when

F = - Fx

Swinging Oscillation from site to site of PendulumEdit

When there is a force acting on a pendulum. The pendulum will swing from side to side for a certain period of time . This type of movement is called oscillation

SummaryEdit

  1. Oscillation is a periodic motion
  2. Oscillation can be thought as a Sinusoidal Wave
  3. Oscillation can be expressed by a mathematic 2nd order differential equation
Oscillation Picture Force Acceleration Distance travel Time Travelled
Spring Oscillation When there is a force acting on a spring . The spring goes into an up and down motion for a certain period of time . This type of movement is called oscillation






Pendulum Oscillation When there is a force acting on a pendulum. The pendulum will swing from side to side for a certain period of time . This type of movement is called oscillation
