1 11 FORCED OSCILLATIONS AND RESONANCE POINTER INSTRUMENTS Analogue ammeter and voltmeters, have CRITICAL DAMPING so as to allow the needle pointer to reach its correct position on the scale after a single oscillation. If the damping were LIGHT, the pointer would oscillate about its actual reading for some time, making it difficult to read. A When a periodic force is applied to an oscillating system, the system undergoes FORCED OSCILLATIONS and the response of the system depends on the frequency of the applied force and the NATURAL FREQUENCY of oscillation of the system. The diagram opposite shows the response of an oscillating system as the forcing frequency is increased from zero. amplitude CAR FUEL GUAGES These are given HEAVY DAMPING so that the pointer does not oscillate at all and so ignores small, transient changes in the fuel level in the tank. If there is little or no damping, the amplitude of the oscillations becomes a maximum when : f natural frequency forcing frequency frequency of the applied = natural frequency of the periodic force oscillating system SOUND LEVEL METERS This condition is called RESONANCE and the Frequency at which it occurs is called the RESONANT FREQUENCY. These are given LIGHT DAMPING so as to show rapid fluctuations in sound intensity. RESONANCE occurs when an oscillating system is forced to vibrate at a frequency close to its natural frequency; the amplitude of vibration increases rapidly and becomes a maximum when the forcing frequency = the natural frequency of the system. FXA 28

2 12 Resonance can be a problem [P], but there are situations where it can be useful [U] EXAMPLES OF RESONANCE When pushing a child on a swing, we time our pushes so that the periodic force frequency = natural frequency of oscillation of the swing-child system. So a small push applied at the end of each oscillation of the swing produces increasing amplitude and so causing the child to swing higher and higher. [U] NOTE : If it were not for the damping due to friction and air resistance, the amplitude of oscillation would continue to increase and eventually the child would loop the loop. A high diver times her bounces on The springboard so that the frequency of her jumps = the natural frequency of vibration of the board. In this way she Builds up a large amplitude oscillation and so gains substantial height when diving. [U] Car body panels as well as other parts can be set into resonant vibration as a result of transmitted engine vibrations at certain speeds. This can also happen with some washing machines when they are in the spin cycle. Tacoma Narrows bridge collapse A cross-wind can cause a periodic force on a suspension bridge span. If the wind speed is such that the frequency of the periodic force = the natural frequency of the bridge span, large amplitude Resonant vibrations can be produced resulting in damage and possible destruction of the bridge. The dramatic collapse of the TACOMA NARROWS BRIDGE in the USA in 194 was caused by such wind generated resonance. In a microwave oven, the microwave frequency matches the frequency of vibration of water molecules in the food being cooked. This forces the molecules to vibrate with increased amplitude resulting in heating of the water and so cooking the food throughout its volume. [U] FXA 28

3 13 RESONANCE DEMONSTRATION - BARTON S PENDULUMS WITHOUT DAMPING The amplitude (and hence energy) of a resonating system would increase continuously as shown in the diagram opposite. RESONANCE AND DAMPING amplitude In practice this can never happen because there is always some degree of damping. WITH DAMPING The amplitude (and energy) will increase until energy is being dissipated at the same rate as it is being supplied. f natural (resonance) frequency forcing frequency DAMPING decreases : Several pendulums of different lengths (A,B,C,D and E) hang from a supporting thread which is stretched between two fixed points as shown above. Each pendulum has its own natural frequency of oscillation. When the driver pendulum X is set into oscillation, all the pendulums start to oscillate, but it is only pendulum C, whose length is equal to that of the driver (and so has the same natural frequency), which builds up a large amplitude. The response of the other pendulums depends on how close their length is to that of the driver X. The AMPLITUDE of resonant vibrations. The frequency at which the MAXIMUM response occurs (i.e. the RESONANCE FREQUENCY,f ). DAMPING is useful when we want to reduce the unwanted effects of RESONANCE. For example, during earthquakes buildings are forced to vibrate by the vibrations of the Earth. Resonance can occur and cause the buildings to collapse. To avoid this, buildings can be constructed on foundations that absorb the energy of the shock waves. This damping prevents the amplitude of the vibrations from reaching dangerously high levels.
