Differentiate between the following:
Free and forced vibrations.
|Free vibrations||Farced vibrations|
|1. When a body vibrates with its natural frequency and ti me period which is characteristic of the body itself, it is said to have free vibrations.||1. When a body is set into vibrations with the help of a strong periodic force then the vibration is said to be forced vibration. The frequency of such vibrations may not be equal to the natural frequency of the body.|
|2. It is difficult to realize such vibrations in practice. They can take place only in vacuum.||2. Such vibrations can be realized in practice.|
