$\tau=8$
$\therefore \omega=\frac{\pi}{4}$
$\mathrm{x}=\sin \left(\frac{\pi}{4} \mathrm{t}\right)$
$\therefore a=-\frac{\pi^{2}}{16} \sin \left(\frac{\pi}{4} t\right)$
$-\frac{\pi^{2} \sqrt{3}}{32} \mathrm{cm} / \mathrm{s}^{2}$

**[IIT JEE 2009]**Ans. (D)
$\frac{\mathrm{k}_{1} \mathrm{k}_{2}}{\mathrm{k}_{1}+\mathrm{k}_{2}} \mathrm{A}=\mathrm{k}_{1} \mathrm{x}=\mathrm{F}$
$\therefore \mathrm{x}=\frac{\mathrm{k}_{2} \mathrm{A}}{\mathrm{k}_{1}+\mathrm{k}_{2}}$

Q. A uniform rod of length L and mass M is pivoted at the centre. Its two ends are attached to two springs of equal spring constants k. The springs are fixed to rigid supports as shown in the figure, and the rod is free to oscillate in the horizontal plane. The rod is gently pushed through a small angle $\theta$ in one direction and released. The frequency of oscillation is :-

**[IIT JEE 2009]**Ans. (C)
$\tau=2 \mathrm{k} \cdot \frac{\ell \theta}{2} \cdot \frac{\ell}{2}=\frac{\mathrm{m} \ell^{2}}{12} \cdot \omega^{2} \theta$
$\therefore \omega=\sqrt{\frac{6 \mathrm{k}}{\mathrm{m}}}$
$\therefore \mathrm{f}=\frac{1}{2 \pi} \sqrt{\frac{6 \mathrm{k}}{\mathrm{m}}}$

**Paragraph for Question No. 4 to 6**When a particle of mass m moves on the x–axis in a potential of the form $\mathrm{V}(\mathrm{x})=\mathrm{k} \mathrm{x}^{2}$, it performs simple harmonic motion. The corresponding time period is proportional to $\sqrt{\frac{m}{k}}$, as can be seen easily using dimensional analysis. However, the motion of a particle can be periodic even when its potential energy increases on both sides of x = 0 in a way different from $\mathrm{kx}^{2}$ and its total energy is such that the particle does not escape to infinity. Consider a particle of mass m moving on the x–axis. Its potential energy is $\mathrm{V}(\mathrm{x})=\alpha \mathrm{x}^{4}(\alpha>0)$ for $|\mathrm{x}|$ near the origin and becomes a constant equal to $\mathrm{V}_{0}$ for $|\mathrm{x}| \geq \mathrm{X}_{0}$ (see figure)Q. If the total energy of the particle is E, it will perform periodic motion only if :-
(A) $\mathrm{E}<0$
(B) E > 0
(C) $\mathrm{V}_{0}>\mathrm{E}>0$
(D) $\mathrm{E}>\mathrm{V}_{0}$

**[IIT-JEE 2010]**Ans. (C)
Particle must be trapped.
$\therefore \mathrm{V}_{0}>\mathrm{E}>0$

Q. For periodic motion of small amplitude

*A*, the time period*T*of this particle is proportional to :- (A) $A \sqrt{\frac{m}{\alpha}}$ (B) $\frac{1}{A} \sqrt{\frac{m}{\alpha}}$ (C) $A \sqrt{\frac{\alpha}{m}}$ (D) $\frac{1}{A} \sqrt{\frac{\alpha}{m}}$**[IIT-JEE 2010]**Ans. (B)
Dimentions are
$\propto=\frac{\left[\mathrm{ML}^{2} \mathrm{T}^{-2}\right]}{\left[\mathrm{L}^{4}\right]}=\left[\mathrm{ML}^{-2} \mathrm{T}^{-2}\right]$
$\therefore \mathrm{T} \propto \frac{1}{\mathrm{A}} \sqrt{\frac{\mathrm{m}}{\alpha}}$

Q. The acceleration of this particle for $|x|>X_{0}$ is :-
(A) proportional to $V_{0}$
(B) proportional to $\frac{V_{0}}{m X_{0}}$
(C) proportional to $\sqrt{\frac{V_{0}}{m X_{0}}}$
(D) Zero

**[IIT-JEE 2010]**Ans. (D)
As $\mathrm{U}=\mathrm{V}_{0}=$ constant
$\therefore \mathrm{a}=0$

Q. A point mass is subjected to two simultaneous sinusoidal displacements in x-direction,
$x_{1}(t)=A \sin \omega t$ and $x_{2}(t)=A \sin \left(\omega t+\frac{2 \pi}{3}\right)$. Adding a third sinusoidal displacement
$x_{3}(t)=B \sin (\omega t+\phi)$ brings the mass to a complete rest. The values of $\mathrm{B}$ and $\phi$ are :-

**[IIT-JEE 2011]**Ans. (B)
$\mathrm{x}^{\prime}=\mathrm{A} \sin (\omega \mathrm{t})+\mathrm{A} \sin \left(\omega \mathrm{t}+\frac{2 \pi}{3}\right)$
$=2 \mathrm{A} \sin \left(\omega \mathrm{t}+\frac{\pi}{3}\right) \cos \left(\frac{\pi}{3}\right)$
$=\mathrm{A} \sin \left(\omega \mathrm{t}+\frac{\pi}{3}\right)$
$\therefore \mathrm{B}=\mathrm{A} \quad \phi=\frac{4 \pi}{3}$

Q. A small block is connected to one end of a massless spring of un-stretched length 4.9 m. The other end of the spring (see the figure) is fixed. They system lies on a horizontal frictionless surface. The block is stretched by 0.2 m and released from rest at t = 0. It then executes simple harmonic motion with angular frequency $\omega=\frac{\pi}{3}$ rad/s. Simultaneously at t = 0, a small pebble is projected with speed v from point P at an angle of 45° as shown in the figure. Point P is at a horizontal distance of 10m from O. If the pebble hits the block at t = 1s, the value of v is:- (take $\left.\mathrm{g}=10 \mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s}^{2}\right)$

Q. A particle of mass m is attached to one end of a mass-less spring of force constant k, lying on a frictionless horizontal plane. The other end of the spring is fixed. The particle starts moving horizontally from its equilibrium position at time t = 0 with an initial velocity $\mathbf{u}_{0}$. When the speed of the particle is 0.5 $\mathbf{u}_{0}$, it collides elastically with a rigid wall. After this collision :-
(A) the speed of the particle when it returns to its equilibrium position is $\mathrm{u}_{0}$
(B) the time at which the particle passes through the equilibrium position for the first
time is $t=\pi \sqrt{\frac{m}{k}}$
(C) the time at which the maximum compression of the spring occurs is $\mathrm{t}=\frac{4 \pi}{3} \sqrt{\frac{\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{k}}}$
(D) the time at which the particle passes through the equilibrium position for the second
time is $t=\frac{5 \pi}{3} \sqrt{\frac{m}{k}}$

**[JEE-Advanced-2013]**Ans. (A,D)
Collision is elastic so energy is conserve in given question so when it return to equilibrium, its speed is $\mathrm{u}_{0}$

**[JEE-Advanced-2016]**

Ans. (A,B,D)
$\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{i}}=2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{\mathrm{M}}{\mathrm{K}}}, \mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{f}}=2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{\mathrm{M}+\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{K}}}$
case (i) :
M $(\mathrm{A} \omega)=(\mathrm{M}+\mathrm{m}) \mathrm{V}$
$\therefore$ Velocity decreases at equilibrium position.
By energy conservation
$\mathrm{A}_{\mathrm{f}}=\mathrm{A}_{\mathrm{i}} \sqrt{\frac{\mathrm{M}}{\mathrm{M}+\mathrm{m}}}$
case ( ii ) :
No energy loss, amplitude remains same
At equilibrium $\left(\mathrm{x}_{0}\right)$ velocity $=\mathrm{A} \omega .$
In both cases $\omega$ decreases so velocity decreases in both cases
