When Velocity is truly constant, the acceleration is_____? zero (even if the velocity is not equal to zero [in other words, the object is not at rest])
What is Vibratory Motion? Occurs at a fixed point as an object moves back and forth. It can also be defined as an object forced to move to and fro periodically, occurring when a particle is vibrated. Oscillatory motion is related to vibratory motion.
What does Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM) represent? The most basic form of vibratory motion --> The cyclic (alternating) exchange of kinetic & potential energy -Repetitive back & forth changes in direction, like the swinging of a pendulum

What is the Equation for Acceleration? Units of Measure? - Acceleration = Change in Velocity / time - m/s^2 or cm/s^2
What is a Simples Harmonic Oscillator (SHO)? How is it started? The name for a Simple Spring-Mass System when used to produce Simple Harmonic Motion -Is started with Force: a push (compressing the spring) or pull (extending the spring)
When is the mass in a SHO resting at equilibrium? When the spring is neither compressed nor extended (no force has been applied to the system): There is no motion, consequently
What is Force? Units of Measure? A push or pull. The rate of change of momentum F = ma 1 Newton: Force required to accelerate a body whose mass is 1 kg at a rate of 1 m/s^2 1 dyne = 1 g at a rate of 1cm/s^2
What do the first 2 of Newton's Laws express? In essence, the idea that a force is required to change the motion of an object, whether the change is from zero velocity (an object at rest) to any magnitude of velocity or a change in the existing motion (an object speeding up).
What is inertia? A body tends to oppose any change in motion -One of the 2 properties that keep the mass vibrating in the simple spring-mass system once it is stated -AKA: The ability of an object to store kinetic energy
Describe the motion of the mass in SHM Constantly changing
What quantities are constantly changes in SHM? Velocity, Acceleration, and Displacement
What does Newton's Second Law state? That the Force involved in the motion of an object is determined by just two factors: Its Acceleration & its Mass. Specifically, Force is the product of mass & acceleration F = ma
If there is no change in motion (if acceleration = 0), then... (this is AKA...) Force is zero. Specifically, Net Force acting on an object is 0. "Equilibrium"/ "resting state"
When forces of unequal magnitude & different directions are acting on an object, the object will: Move in the direction of the greater force, with acceleration proportional to the net force acting on it. On the contrary, forces acting in the same direction will add
Momentum is: The product of mass and velocity. Force is the rate of change of momentum.
Describe Velocity in SHM Velocity peaks as the mass heads back toward E - So the mass keeps moving. It then started to lose its momentum, coming to a halt at -A (suspended in a balance/neutralization of forces, at least for an instant). Implies another force acting in the SHO.

The (-) in (-k) indicates: That the restoring force opposes the applied force

The vibratory motion of the simple SMS, initiated from a simple push or pull, must be attributed to what interaction? The interaction between the inertia of the mass and the stiffness of the spring as it is alternately compressed & extended upon displacement of the mass.

In terms of simpler motion (than SHM), what is steady-state motion? The achievement of a constant velocity after a certain amount of acceleration... Which happens b/c the applied force will then be balanced by frictional force.
If Friction were not present, Even the smallest continuous force applied to the object would cause it to accelerate indefinitely
If the frictional opposition, or resistance, is overcome with increased force... the object is again accelerated.
The opposing force of friction is: velocity-dependent: friction limits velocity.
The coefficient of friction depends on 3 main concepts: 1) both the nature of the surfaces 2) The force holding the surfaces together. Example of Force = Weight (gravity acting on the mass of an object) 3) Whether the object is in motion or at rest
