SPRING PENDULUM (horizontal)



Horizontal oscillations of a {MASS-SPRING} SYSTEM




Flash animation: Interactive flash animation to study the simple harmonic oscillator (horizontal). First, an experimental assembly with force and motion sensors (detectors). Then, a theoric equivalent assembly.


Simple harmonic motion: Ideal oscillator whose evolution over time is described by a sinusoidal function whose frequency depends only on the characteristics of the system and whose amplitude is constant.


In classical mechanics, a harmonic oscillator is a system that, when displaced from its equilibrium position, experiences a restoring force F proportional to the displacement x:

F = k x
