The Displacement of a Particle is Given by → R = a ( → I Cos ω T + → J Sin ω T ) . the Motion of the Particle is - Physics

MCQ

The displacement of a particle is given by \[\overrightarrow{r} = A\left( \overrightarrow{i} \cos\omega t + \overrightarrow{j} \sin\omega t \right) .\] The motion of the particle is

 

Options

  • simple harmonic

  • on a straight line

  • on a circle

  • with constant acceleration

Solution

on a circle

We know,

\[\frac{\text {d}^2}{\text {dt}^2} \overrightarrow{r} = - \omega^2 \overrightarrow{r} \]

But there is a phase difference of 90o between the x and y components because of which the particle executes a circular motion and hence, the projection of the particle on the diameter executes a simple harmonic motion.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
