2. Waves carry from one place to another. 3. The highest point on a transverse wave is the while the lowest part is the . 4. The is the height of the wave. 5. The distance from one crest to the next is the . 6. Below are a number of series of waves. Underneath each diagram write the numbers of waves in the series. a.
F(x) = -kx, (1) m (d 2 x/dt 2) = -kx. (2) we will outline a method for analyzing a mechanical system to determine whether it can be characterized by simple harmonic motion. Determine the net force acting on the particle. Identify forces acting on the particle by drawing a free-body diagram. Choose a convenient coordinate system.
