damped-SHM-template.iwp

This plots position (vertical) as a function of time (horizontal) for an object subject to a Hooke's Law restoring force. Suppose that the object is also subject to a force that always acts opposite the ..

lissajous-figures.iwp

An object is subject to independent restoring forces along the x- and y-axes. It's like being pulled on by springs along both axes simultaneously. Do the following. a. Change one input in order to make ..

pendulum01.iwp

A pendulum is released from rest and oscillates in a vertical plane. The angle of release, mass of the bob, gravitational field, and length of the string can be adjusted. At large angles, the applet ..

shm-phase-01.iwp

The red and blue objects have the same mass and oscillate in SHM with the same period and amplitude. The only thing different is the phase. Change the phase of the blue object so that ..
