Assessment

Complete the Multiple Choice Quiz to test your knowledge of Simple Harmonic Motion

1. The motion of a mass on a spring traces out
a Parabola
a Straight Line
a Sine Wave
No regular pattern
2. The period of a simple pendulum depends on
Linear displacement, s
Mass, m
Angle theta
Length, L and Gravity,g
3. A property of Simple Harmonic Motion is that
the restoring force must be continually increased
the restoring force obeys Hooke's Law
when the mass passes through equilibrium the restoring is the greatest
there is no restoring force
4. The Amplitude of the motion of a mass on a string is defined as the
maximum displacement from equilibrium
distance from the maximum to the minimum displacement
the time for one complete cycle
the number of cycles per unit time
5. A 1 kg mass is suspended from a spring with a spring constant of k = 45 N/m and the system undergoes simple harmonic motion. If the mass is increased to 4 kg, the period of the simple harmonic motion will be
four times greater
double (two times greater)
reduced by one half (1/2)
reduced by one fourth (1/4)
