Extension x The same linear force is also generated when the spring is compressed. Quick review of simple harmonic motion from Physics 1425… Mass on a Spring • Suppose we attach a • A Natural length mass m to the spring, free to slide backwards m and forwards on the frictionless frictionless surface, then Spring’s force pull it out to x and let go.

Spreadsheet AC Source and Resistor • . • For an AC source (denoted by a wavy line in a circle) VV sint 0 the current is: I I sin t V / R sin t.  00 • The current and voltage peak at the same time. • Power: the ac source is working at a rate 2 1 P IV I V sint I V 0 0 0 0 2AC Source and Inductor • For a purely inductive circuit, for V  V s in t , the current is 0 given by V sint LdI / dt 0 so I  I co s t where 0 IV /L 00 ωL is the inductive reactance. Power: P IV I V sin t cos t 0 00AC Source and Inductor… IV /L 00 ωL is inductive reactance. • Notice that this increases with frequency: faster oscillations mean more back emf. • Note also that the peak in current occurs after the peak in voltage in the cycle. AC Source and Capacitor • For pure capacitance, V sin t Q / C Q sin t / C  00 so I I cost dQ / dt Q cost 00 and from this we see that ICV 00 and the capacitive reactance is: 1 X C  CComparing Pure L and Pure C • . • For L, peak emf is before peak current, for C peak current is first. • Mnemonic: ELI the ICE man. • No power is dissipated in inductors nor in capacitors, since emf and current are 90 out of phase: 1 sint cost sin 2t 0 2L and C in Series • The same current is passing through both: the red curve is the emf drop over L and C respectively—notice they’re in opposite directions • (We show here a special case ω = L = C = 1 where no external emf is needed to keep current going— this is resonance.)
