During harmonic oscillation, the total net force on the object
is _______.
A. pointing the opposite direction of the object\'s velocity.
B. Pointing the same direction of the object\'s velocity.
C. Always pointing one direction.
D. Always 0.
Solution
In SHM, Net Force is given by:
F = -k*x
x = displacement from the equilibrium position
k = spring constant
F = restoring Force
So From above equation we can see that net force on object
in SHM motion is always trying to stop the motion, which
will always be in opposite direction of the object\'s velocity.
