# Understanding Wave - Oscillation

The SPM Physics Workbook is developed under the One-School.net Free Books Project. The content of this book is strictly follow Malaysia SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) syllabus. The aim of this project is to provide a complete electronic supplementary network for students to develop self-learning skills by breaking the spoon-feed rituals and to encourage them to compile educational information from the Internet.
1. A pendulum is oscillating with amplitude 2cm and frequency 1.5Hz. Which of the following graphs correctly shows the displacement of the pendulum bob against time?

2. Which of the following quantities will decrease when an oscillating system undergoes damped oscillation?
Speed
Amplitude
Frequency
Wave length

3. Damping of an oscillating system is due to
the system is losing energy to the surrounding.
the system has been set up wrongly.
the system is not oscillating in vacuum

.
4. A force oscillation is

A system oscillates with maximum amplitude.
A system oscillates with decreasing amplitude.
A system oscillates with the help of an external force.
A system oscillates without any external force act on it.

5. When an oscillating spring reaches resonance state, it
Stop oscillates.
Experiencing damped oscillation.
Oscillates with maximum amplitude.
Oscillates with higher frequency.

6. The natural frequency of a spring is f Herz. Resonance happens if the frequency of the external force that applied on it is
0.5f Hz
f Hz
2f Hz
4f Hz

7. Five pendulums are hung at a wire PQ. The pendulum X is displaced and then released. Which of the other pendulum will oscillate with greatest amplitude?
Pendulum A
Pendulum B
Pendulum C
Pendulum D

8. A thin piece of glass is broken when a soprano is singing with a high pitch. This probably is caused by a physics phenomena called
Diffraction
Interference
Damping
Resonance

9. It is observed that a car will vibrate intensely at a particular speed. This is probably due to
Inertia
Resonance
Damping
Diffraction
