## What happens to period when amplitude is halved?

(i) As time period of oscillation os simple pendulum T=2π√lg is independent of amplitude of oscillation, hence time period of oscillation does no change with the change in the amplitude of oscillation.

### What will happen to the time period if amplitude is changed?

As Time Period increases displacement decreases. As Amplitude increases displacement increases. Therefore using displacement as a parameter. Having displacement increase means that Amplitude increases and Time Period decrease.

**Does amplitude affect time period?**

Amplitude does not affect the time period for an ideal pendulum.

**How does amplitude affect displacement?**

Because amplitude is the maximum displacement, it is related to the energy in the oscillation. When displaced from equilibrium, the object performs simple harmonic motion that has an amplitude X and a period T. The object’s maximum speed occurs as it passes through equilibrium.

## What happens to period if amplitude doubles?

Time period is independent of the amplitude of vibration. Therefore, time period remains unchanged on doubling the amplitude of oscillation. When amplitude is doubled, the maximum velocity becomes twice. (iii) Acceleration at mean position is zero and is independent of the amplitude of vibration.

### How does the time period vary with the amplitude of oscillations?

(a) The time period of oscillations is directly proportional to the square root of the length of the pendulum. (c) The time period of oscillations of simple pendulum does not depend on the amplitude of oscillations.

**What is effect of amplitude in time period for pendulum?**

Increasing the amplitude means that there is a larger distance to travel, but the restoring force also increases, which proportionally increases the acceleration. This means the mass can travel a greater distance at a greater speed. These attributes cancel each other, so amplitude has no effect on period.

**What would happen to the period if you change the amplitude of the pendulum?**

The longer the length of string, the farther the pendulum falls; and therefore, the longer the period, or back and forth swing of the pendulum. The greater the amplitude, or angle, the farther the pendulum falls; and therefore, the longer the period.)

## What is the relationship between period and amplitude?

Noting that K is a constant of the motion, the displacement in each successive interval of time is proportional to the initial displacement A which is the amplitude of the motion. If the amplitude doubled so would the distance covered in a given time. Thus the period of the motion does not depend on the amplitude.

### What will be the effect on time period if the amplitude of a simple pendulum increases?

In a simple pendulum, which can be modeled as a point mass at the end of a string of negligible mass and a given length, the amplitude is normally only a few degrees. When the amplitude is this small, it does not affect the periodof the pendulum. As the amplitudeof the pendulum increases, the period increases.

**What is the displacement amplitude?**

Particle displacement or displacement amplitude is a measurement of distance of the movement of a sound particle from its equilibrium position in a medium as it transmits a sound wave. The SI unit of particle displacement is the metre (m).

**What is the relationship between amplitude and time period?**

As Time Period increases displacement decreases. As Amplitude increases displacement increases. Therefore using displacement as a parameter. Having displacement increase means that Amplitude increases and Time Period decrease. Amplitude and Time Period have an inverse relationship.

## What happens when the amplitude of a wave is double?

However, iirc this is different from the time from x=-A/4 to x=+A/4 (this is still a half-amplitude distance). When the amplitude of a wave becomes double, its energy becomes 4 times stronger/greater. How?

### How does amplitude affect frequency of harmonic oscillator?

Doubling the amplitude of a harmonic oscillator has no effect on its frequency (and, thus, also its inverse, the period). We actually evaluate this effect in our physics lab classes.

**What is the time from mean to half amplitude in SHM?**

If the time to do this is T, then each stage takes T/4. Since this is SHM, the time from mean to A/2 (half amplitude) is T/8 and is the same as the time from A/2 to A (half amplitude to extreme). However, iirc this is different from the time from x=-A/4 to x=+A/4 (this is still a half-amplitude distance).
