# Elasticity and Oscillations

Intrinsic Strength of
Materials
Hanging by a hair
Can a single hair
support
A hair, cable etc. can hold
more weight if it has
greater cross section.

Intrinsic Strength of
Materials
Would we build a suspension bridge
from Rapunzals hair?

## Steel cable is intrinsically stronger than ha

Intrinsic Strength of
Materials
Compare strength of materials:
consider not just how much weight
they can support
but how much weight for a given
cross section

## Apply a force to both ends of a long wire.

These forces will stretch the wire from length
L to L+L.

## If we pull on a spring it increases in length

If we pull on a wire increases in length.
Longer wires (and springs) will stretch more
short ones

## Y is called Youngs modulus and is a

measure of an objects stiffness.
Hookes Law holds for an object to a
point called the proportional limit.

## Example (text problem 10.7): A 0.50 m long

guitar string, of cross-sectional area 1.0106
m2, has a Youngs modulus of 2.0109 Pa. By
how much must you stretch a guitar string to
obtain a tension of 20 N?

## Beyond Hookes Law

If the stress on an object exceeds the elastic
original length.
An object will fracture if the stress exceeds
the breaking point. The ratio of maximum
load to the original cross-sectional area is
called tensile strength.
The ultimate strength of a material is the
maximum stress that it can withstand before
breaking.

## Example (text problem 10.10): An acrobat of

mass 55 kg is going to hang by her teeth
from a steel wire and she does not want the
wire to stretch beyond its elastic limit. The
elastic limit for the wire is 2.5108 Pa. What
is the minimum diameter the wire should
have to support her?

Oscillations
Time it takes for the ball to roll down, up
opposite side, down and back is the period

## T is the time to complete one full cycle.

Equivalent information is
number of cycles in one second ,frequency f.
e.g. T= 1/10 f = 10; T = 5 f= 1/5
f=1/T T = 1/f
Frequency is measured in Hertz = 1 cycle
/second

## We can plot the position of the

ball as a function of time. A is
the distance from the bottom of
the cup.

15

## Simple harmonic motion

(SHM) occurs when the
restoring force (the force
directed toward a stable
equilibrium point) is
proportional to the
displacement from
equilibrium.

## At the equilibrium point x = 0 so a = 0 too.

When the stretch is a maximum, a will be a
maximum too.

## The velocity at the end points will be zero, and it

is a maximum at the equilibrium point.

Motion

## When a mass-spring system is oriented

vertically, it will exhibit SHM with the same
period and frequency as a horizontally
placed system.

A is maximum displacement, =2/T
The v graph also is SHO

vmax should get larger if A is large ( fixed)

## Example (text problem 10.30): The period of

oscillation of an object in an ideal mass-spring
system is 0.50 sec and the amplitude is 5.0 cm.
