### Stopping angular momentum to obtain a particular angle [on hold]

While the overall project relates to software development, it boils down to a simple (i think) physics problem. I have a joint (a motor, pretty much.) that needs to move to a specific angle. I can ...

### Meaning of “Simple” in Simple Pendulum and Simple Harmonic Motion?

I have gone through the Phys.SE question Why is simple harmonic motion called so?. From the 1st answer of this Question it seems to me that another type of "Harmonic motion" is "Damped Harmonic ...

### Harmonic Oscillator driven by a Dirac delta-like force

Consider that there is no damping for simplicity. As we know, a driving force of the form $\sin(\omega t)$ will make the oscillator at steady state vibrates at the external frequency $\omega$. What ...

### How to include Damping in a Simple harmonic oscillator

Im designing a model for Kelvin Method. Some of my calculation results are as follows: Radius of the membrane : 50 micron thickness of the membrane : 3.25 micron resonate frequency : 1.32MHz ...

### Oscillator, angular frequency equation

I found the highlighted equation on the Wikipedia on angular frequency, however it doesn't say how it was obtained, could someone please explain that? Also, it says that the spring is massless, if ...

### How to find the phase constant? [closed]

I was given this velocity-vs-time graph of a particle in simple harmonic motion: I determined the amplitude to be $A = 1.15$ m, which Mastering Physics confirmed is correct. Then I was asked to ...

### Coupled Oscillators

This is an exercise of my last exam. Since I couldn't find anybody who solved it or knows how to, it would be really nice if somebody could tell me if my thoughts on it go into the right direction. ...

### Mass frequency problem

For Dispersion relation , according to Gaussian profile, the author in the equation 3 wrote as $\omega= \left(k^2+\omega_{mass}^2\right)^{1/2}$ My question is what is mass frequency and how it arose ...

### Periodic sequence with exponentially increasing period?

I have to develop a physical model for a certain type of biological oscillation that can be built upon periodic sequences. From earlier questions I know that any periodic sequence (containing $0$s ...

### Help understanding this forced undamped oscillator

I have a forced oscillating system, with driving force as $f_0\cos\omega_0 t \cos \delta t$ giving the equation of motion: \ddot{x}(t) +\Gamma \dot{x}(t) +\omega_0^2x(t) = f_0\cos\omega_0 t \cos ...
