## Subjective Questions

Question 1

(a) Determine the frequency and time period of the tuning fork
(b) Write the equations expressing its displacement and velocity as a function of time .Assume initial phase is zero

Question 2

(a) Find the equation of the displacement
(b) Show that the amplitude of motion is $32\frac{2^{1/2}}{\pi} \ m$
Question 3
A particle is moving with SHM in a straight line, when the distance of the particle from the equilibrium position has the values x1 and x2, the corresponding velocities are u1 and u2. Show that time period of SHM is
$T=2\pi\left[\frac{x_2^2-x_1^2}{u_1^2-u_2^2}\right]^{1/2}$
