#### Techniques for Studying Materials: Reciprocal Space

(University of Cambridge, 2013-08)

The concept of reciprocally has been introduced in the Diffraction and Imaging TLP, and in the X-ray Diffraction TLP within the Bragg and Scherrer equations. This inverse scaling between real and reciprocal space is based ...

#### PhysCasts: The Length of a Vibrating Spring

(Swinburne Commons, 2013)

This PhysCast is going to look at standing waves on a stretched string. A 45 gram string is tightly stretched and fixed firmly at each end. The tension in the string is 78 N, and it vibrates with its 3rd harmonic at 120 ...

#### PhysCasts: Sphere Suspended Against a Wall

(Swinburne Commons, 2013)

The following PhysCast is about a sphere which is attached to a wall. A uniform sphere of mass m = 0.85 kg and radius r = 4.2 cm is held in place by a mass-less rope attached to a friction-less wall a distance of L = 8.0 ...

#### PhysCasts: Sinusoidal Waves

(Swinburne Commons, 2013)

Video explains that a wave on a taut wire is described by the equation y=1.5sin(0.10x-560t), where x and y are in cm and t is in seconds. Find the: a) Amplitude, b) Wavelength, c) Period, d) Wave speed of the wave.

#### PhysCasts: Transverse Wave Maths

(Swinburne Commons, 2013)

This PhysCast describes a question which deals with a wave which is travelling along a string.

#### PhysCasts: Ski Jump with Drag Force

(Swinburne Commons, 2013)

This PhysCast looks at a conservation of energy problem. A 60 kg skier leaves the end of a ski-jump ramp with a velocity of 24 m/s directed 25 degrees above the horizontal. Suppose that as a result of air drag the skier ...

#### PhysCasts: Energy in Rotation: Anchor Example

(Swinburne Commons, 2013)

This problem is worked through: an anchor of mass 500kg is attached to a light cable that passes over a roller of negligible mass and winds around a hollow cylindrical drum of radius 1.2m and mass 250kg which can rotate ...

#### PhysCasts: Tossing a Ball Attached to a Spring

(Swinburne Commons, 2013)

This PhysCast will analyse a motion problem using conservation of energy. A 1.25 kg ball is attached to the ground by a spring with k = 22 N/m and upstretched length of 0.55 m. The ball is thrown straight upwards, being ...

#### PhysCasts; Two Springs Oscillate a Mass

(Swinburne Commons, 2013)

This PhysCast is about oscillatory motion. Two identical springs of spring constant 7580 Nm-1 are attached to a block of mass 0.295 kg. What is the frequency of oscillation on a friction-less floor?
