PHYS 221.501 | More on Simple Harmonic Motion

Total mechanical energy is conserved in SHM: \(E = \frac{1}{2}mv_x^2 + \frac{1}{2}kx^2 = \frac{1}{2}kA^2 = constant\) Choose \(t’\) such that \(x(t’) = Acos(\omega t’ + \phi) = -\frac{1}{2}A\) \(v_x(t’) = -\omega A sin(\omega t’ + \phi)) -> (v_x = -\omega Asin(\frac{2\pi}{3}) = \) oh well…. Energy diagrams for SHM: Graph these with respect to constant system energy: \(PE …
