Problem 5.1 (20 pts)

In a lab, a graduate student was studying a strong of length L, ﬁxed at both ends.

a. Find the total energy of a vibration of the strong oscillating with its nth normal mode with amplitude

A. The tension in the string is T and its total mass is M . (Hint: Consider the integrated kinetic

energy at the instant when the string is straight, such that the potential energy due to the vibration

is zero).

b. Calculate the total energy of vibration of the same string if it is vibrating in the following superposi-

tion of normal modes. Assume that is is the sum of the energies of the two modes taken separately.

ψ(x, t) = A1 sin cos(ω1 t) + A3 sin cos(ω3 t − π/4)

L L

A string of length L, tension T , and mass per unit length ρL ﬁxed at both ends is distorted as shown in

Figure 1. The height of the square pulse is h. The string is constrained to vibrate only in the vertical

direction. At t = 0, the string is carefully released such that the initial velocity of the string is 0.

a. What is the speed of a progressing wave on this string?

b. Plot to scale the shape of the string at t = L4 ρTL

Consider a string of mass density ρ under tension T . A pulse is traveling on the string, causing a vertical

displacement given by:

(x−vt) 2

h i

y(x, t) = y e 2 ( σ )

Energy in the wave is a sum of kinetic energy of the moving string and the potential energy of the

string deformation integrated over the whole length of the string.

a. For the displacement given above, ﬁnd an expression for the kinetic energy density of the string at

some time t and sketch the result as function of x.

b. Find an expression for the potential energy density of the string. Compare it with the kinetic energy

density.

c. Find an expression for the total energy of the pulse in terms of T , y0 and σ. Check the units. Recall

that the energy should vary as a square of the amplitude. (Hint: You may need to use Gaussian

d. Find an expression for the power (Watts) ﬂowing across the point x = x0 as a function of time.

Sketch the result.

Consider a string with linear density ρL split into two pieces. The two halves are attached to a massless

ring which slides vertically without friction on a rod at x = 0 as shown in Figure 2. One of the two halves

is stretched in the negative x direction with tension TL , the other is stretched in the positive x direction

with tension TR . Note that the vertical rod is necessary to balance the horizontal forces on the massless

string arising from the two string with diﬀerent tensions.

Assume that there is a traveling wave of amplitude A coming from the negative x direction.

a. Assuming the incident wave has this functional form: ψ(x, t) = α cos (kx − ωt), write the general

expression for the string displacement ψ(x, t) on both sides of the ring.

b. Write the expressions for boundary conditions at x = 0. (Hint: since the ring is massless, the total

force on the ring is 0)

c. Find the reﬂection (R) and transmission (T ) coeﬃcients for this system.

d. Show that the energy is conserved at the junction.

e. What are the reﬂection and transmission coeﬃcients in the following three cases: TR = TL , TR TL ,

and TR TL ? Does your result make sense?

A string of mass density ρL under tension T is attached by a massless ring to a wire covered with a viscous

grease. The ring experiences a vertical drag force Fy = −b ∂y

∂t when the end of the string moves.

a. Use Newton’s Law applied to the ring to ﬁnd the boundary condition at the end of the string as a

relation between the partial derivatives of y(x, t) at that point. (Hint: there are three forces acting

on the ring: string tension, normal force from the wire and the vertical drag force)

b. Show that the boundary condition is satisﬁed by an incident pulse f (t− xv ) and reﬂected pulse g(t+ xv ).

Find g in terms of f .

c. Show that your result has the proper behavior in the limits b → 0 (free slip) and b → ∞ (clamped

string).
