- special case of forced vibrations
In the diagram below, A, B, C, D are four pendulums suspended from the same elastic string PQ. The length of A and C are equal to each other while the length of pendulum B is smaller than that of D. Pendulum A is set into a mode of vibrations
1) Name the type of vibrations taking place in pendulums B and D?
2) What is the state of pendulum C?
3) State the reason for the type of vibrations in pendulum B and C.
(i) Define resonant vibrations.
(ii) Which characteristic of sound, makes it possible to recognize a person by his voice without seeing him?
Two pendulums C and D are suspended from a wire as shown in the figure give below. Pendulum C is made to oscullate by displaying it from its mean position. It is seen that D also starts oscillating.
(i) Name the type of oscillation, C will execute.
(ii) Name the type of oscillation, D will execute.
(iii) If the length of D is made equal to C then what difference will you notice in the oscillations of D ?
(iv) What is the name of the phenomenon when the length of D is made equal to C ?
The adjacent diagram shows three different modes of vibrations P, Q and R of the same string.
(i) Which vibration will produce a louder sound and why?
(ii) The sound of which string will have maximum shrillness?
(iii) State the ratio of wavelengths of P and R.
