 simple harmonic motion vibration about an equilibrium position in which a restoring force is proportional to the displacement from equilibrium spring force formula F=-kx Whta does a greater value of the spring constant mean? a stiffer spring becaue a greater force is needed to stretch or compress that spring What are the SI units of k? N/m amplitude maximum displacement from the equilibrium position period the time it takes to execute a complete cycle of motion frequency the number of cycles or vibrations per unit of time relationship between frequency and perido f=1/T or T=1/F What does the period of a simple pendulum depend on? pendulum length and free-fall acceleration What does the period of a pendulum of for small amplitudes depend on? not on the amplitude formula for a period of a simple pendulum period=2pi X square root of (length divided by free-fall acceleration) What does the period of a mass-spring system depend on? mass and spring constant formula for period of a mass-spring system in simple harmonic motion period=2pi X square root of (mass divided by spring constant) medium the material through which a disturbance travels mechanical wave a wave that propogates through a deformable., elastic medium pulse wave a single, nonperiodic disturbance periodic wave a wave whose source is some form of periodic motion sine wave a wave whose source vibrates with simple harmonic motion transverse wave a wave whose particles vibrate perpendicularly to the direction of wave motion crest highest point above the equilibrium position trough the lowest point below the equilibrium position wavelength the distane the wave travels during one cycle What is parallel to the wave motion? vibrations of a longitudinal wave longitudinal wave a wave whose particles vibrate parallel to the direction of wave motion formula for speed of a wave speed of a wave=frequency X wavelength superposition the combination of 2 overlapping waves standing wave a wave pattern that results when 2 waves of the same frequenc, wavelength, and amplitude travel in opposite directions and interfere node a point in a standing wave that always undergoes complete destructive interference and therefore is stationary antinode a point in a standing wave, halfway between two nodes, at which the largest amplitude occurs
