Question 14.25:

A mass attached to a spring is free to oscillate, with angular velocity , in a horizontal plane without friction or damping. It is pulled to a distance and pushed towards the centre with a velocity at time . Determine the amplitude of the resulting oscillations in terms of the parameters [Hint: Start with the equation and note that the initial velocity is negative.]


The displacement equation for an oscillating mass is given by:


is the amplitude

is the displacement

is the phase constant




Squaring and adding equations , we get:

Hence, the amplitude of the resulting oscillation is
