Throughout our daily lives, we encounter a variety of various body movements. Moving from one location to another in time is known as translator motion in the field of physics. Consider a plane in the air, a train in motion, or a ball in motion; all of these are examples of translation motion. Then there's oscillatory motion, in which the same action is performed again by the body. The motion of a clock, a tuning fork, a swing, etc. are all instances of oscillatory motion. Several everyday occurrences may be explained by considering the role of oscillations and waves. After ... Read More

Simple harmonic motion and uniform circular motion

Updated on 22-Aug-2023 11:18:01


Introduction Simple harmonic motion can be defined as a periodic motion of a particular point in a straight line like its acceleration is to the fixed point of that line and its acceleration is directly proportional to the distance of it from a particular point. On the other hand, Uniform Circular Motion denotes the motion of a particle that is moving at a perpetual speed along the circular path. In this case, the speed of the particular component remains constant but its velocity. It can be said that if the particle moves by maintaining circular motion, then its projection will ...

Introduction In introducing this it needs to be understood that the phenomenon of resonance is used in determining the unknown frequency. It is a special phenomenon, which is used in our daily lives, majorly in the field of music. It is sometimes used to understand several musical instruments, and sometimes used to increase the extent of intensity of sounds' ' in several instruments of music. However, to tune the radio receiver, the phenomenon of resonance is used. Definition of Resonance Resonance is a peculiar phenomenon, where an external force or any other forces of vibrating substances tends to exert ... Read More
