Note that for all damped systems, \( \lim \limits_{t \to \infty} x(t)=0\). These substitutions give a descent time t [the time interval between the parachute opening to the point where a speed of (1.01) v 2 is attained] of approximately 4.2 seconds, and a minimum altitude at which the parachute must be opened of y ≈ 55 meters (a little higher than 180 feet). It is impossible to fine-tune the characteristics of a physical system so that \(b^2\) and \(4mk\) are exactly equal. Solve a second-order differential equation representing damped simple harmonic motion. In this section, we look at how this works for systems of an object with mass attached to a vertical spring and an electric circuit containing a resistor, an inductor, and a capacitor connected in series. Consider an electrical circuit containing a resistor, an inductor, and a capacitor, as shown in Figure \(\PageIndex{12}\). Find the equation of motion of the lander on the moon. The key idea of our approach is to use the Riccati transformation and the theory of comparison with first and second-order delay equations. This suspension system can be modeled as a damped spring-mass system. This is the principle behind tuning a radio, the process of obtaining the strongest response to a particular transmission. Abstract— Differential equations are fundamental importance in engineering mathematics because any physical laws and relations appear mathematically in the form of such equations. The graph is shown in Figure \(\PageIndex{10}\). Example 3: (Compare to Example 2.) While quite a major portion of the techniques is only useful for academic purposes, there are some which are important in the solution of real problems arising from science and engineering. Note that ω = 2π f. Damped oscillations. If \(b^2−4mk<0\), the system is underdamped. Express the following functions in the form \(A \sin (ωt+ϕ) \). It is called the angular frequency of the motion and denoted by ω (the Greek letter omega). \[\begin{align*} mg &=ks \\ 384 &=k(\dfrac{1}{3})\\ k &=1152. However, if the damping force is weak, and the external force is strong enough, real-world systems can still exhibit resonance. Therefore, the spring is said to exert arestoring force, since it always tries to restore the block to its equilibrium position (the position where the spring is neither stretched nor compressed). All rights reserved. If \(b^2−4mk=0,\) the system is critically damped. Therefore, set v equal to (1.01) v 2 in equation (***) and solve for t; then substitute the result into (**) to find the desired altitude. All that is required is to adapt equation (*) to the present situation. \nonumber\], \[\begin{align*} x(t) &=3 \cos (2t) −2 \sin (2t) \\ &= \sqrt{13} \sin (2t−0.983). \nonumber\]. Consider an undamped system exhibiting simple harmonic motion. where \(λ_1\) is less than zero. \nonumber\], Applying the initial conditions \(x(0)=0\) and \(x′(0)=−3\) gives. Follow the process from the previous example. The rate of descent of the lander can be controlled by the crew, so that it is descending at a rate of 2 m/sec when it touches down. The long-term behavior of the system is determined by \(x_p(t)\), so we call this part of the solution the steady-state solution. After only 10 sec, the mass is barely moving. To this end, differentiate the previous equation directly, and use the definition i = dq/ dt: This differential equation governs the behavior of an LRC series circuit with a source of sinusoidally varying voltage. Thus, \(16=(\dfrac{16}{3})k,\) so \(k=3.\) We also have \(m=\dfrac{16}{32}=\dfrac{1}{2}\), so the differential equation is, Multiplying through by 2 gives \(x″+5x′+6x=0\), which has the general solution, \[x(t)=c_1e^{−2t}+c_2e^{−3t}. Since the general solution of (***) was found to be. Example \(\PageIndex{2}\): Expressing the Solution with a Phase Shift. Last, the voltage drop across a capacitor is proportional to the charge, q, on the capacitor, with proportionality constant \(1/C\). Watch this video for his account. Therefore the wheel is 4 in. When the underdamped circuit is “tuned” to this value, the steady‐state current is maximized, and the circuit is said to be in resonance. \nonumber\]. This may seem counterintuitive, since, in many cases, it is actually the motorcycle frame that moves, but this frame of reference preserves the development of the differential equation that was done earlier. According to the preceding calculation, resonance is achieved when, Therefore, in terms of a (relatively) fixed ω and a variable capacitance, resonance will occur when, (where f is the frequency of the broadcast). This is the prototypical example ofsimple harmonic motion. First Order Differential Equation; These are equations that contain only the First derivatives y 1 and may contain y and any given functions of x. Assuming NASA engineers make no adjustments to the spring or the damper, how far does the lander compress the spring to reach the equilibrium position under Martian gravity? Find the equation of motion if it is released from rest at a point 40 cm below equilibrium. Find the equation of motion if an external force equal to \(f(t)=8 \sin (4t)\) is applied to the system beginning at time \(t=0\). Example \(\PageIndex{3}\): Overdamped Spring-Mass System. This is the spring’s natural position. The length of time required to complete one cycle (one round trip) is called the period of the motion (and denoted by T.) It can be shown in general that for the spring‐block oscillator. Next, according to Ohm’s law, the voltage drop across a resistor is proportional to the current passing through the resistor, with proportionality constant R. Therefore. For example, ⋅ (“ s dot”) denotes the first derivative of s with respect to t, and  (“ s double dot”) denotes the second derivative of s with respect tot. Unless the block slides back and forth on a frictionless table in a room evacuated of air, there will be resistance to the block's motion due to the air (just as there is for a falling sky diver). \nonumber\]. Newton's Second Law can be applied to this spring‐block system. Application of Second Order Differential Equations in Mechanical Engineering Analysis Tai-Ran Hsu, Professor Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering San Jose State University San Jose, California, USA ME 130 Applied Engineering Analysis \nonumber\], Applying the initial conditions \(q(0)=0\) and \(i(0)=((dq)/(dt))(0)=9,\) we find \(c_1=−10\) and \(c_2=−7.\) So the charge on the capacitor is, \[q(t)=−10e^{−3t} \cos (3t)−7e^{−3t} \sin (3t)+10. If an external force acting on the system has a frequency close to the natural frequency of the system, a phenomenon called resonance results. It approaches these equations from the point of view of the Frobenius method and discusses their solutions in detail. When an electric circuit containing an ac voltage source, an inductor, a capacitor, and a resistor in series is analyzed mathematically, the equation that results is a second‐order linear differentically equation with constant coefficients. Example 2: A block of mass 1 kg is attached to a spring with force constant  N/m. This behavior can be modeled by a second-order constant-coefficient differential equation. When the motorcycle is lifted by its frame, the wheel hangs freely and the spring is uncompressed. The suspension system on the craft can be modeled as a damped spring-mass system. Electric circuits and resonance. These are second-order differential equations, categorized according to the highest order derivative. When the rider mounts the motorcycle, the suspension compresses 4 in., then comes to rest at equilibrium. Just as in Second-Order Linear Equations we consider three cases, based on whether the characteristic equation has distinct real roots, a repeated real root, or complex conjugate roots. To convert the solution to this form, we want to find the values of A and \(ϕ\) such that, \[c_1 \cos (ωt)+c_2 \sin (ωt)=A \sin (ωt+ϕ). \(\newcommand{\id}{\mathrm{id}}\) \( \newcommand{\Span}{\mathrm{span}}\) \( \newcommand{\kernel}{\mathrm{null}\,}\) \( \newcommand{\range}{\mathrm{range}\,}\) \( \newcommand{\RealPart}{\mathrm{Re}}\) \( \newcommand{\ImaginaryPart}{\mathrm{Im}}\) \( \newcommand{\Argument}{\mathrm{Arg}}\) \( \newcommand{\norm}[1]{\| #1 \|}\) \( \newcommand{\inner}[2]{\langle #1, #2 \rangle}\) \( \newcommand{\Span}{\mathrm{span}}\), 17.3: Applications of Second-Order Differential Equations, [ "article:topic", "Simple Harmonic Motion", "angular frequency", "Forced harmonic motion", "RLC series circuit", "spring-mass system", "Hooke\u2019s law", "steady-state solution", "license:ccbyncsa", "showtoc:no", "authorname:openstaxstrang" ], https://math.libretexts.org/@app/auth/3/login?returnto=https%3A%2F%2Fmath.libretexts.org%2FBookshelves%2FCalculus%2FBook%253A_Calculus_(OpenStax)%2F17%253A_Second-Order_Differential_Equations%2F17.3%253A_Applications_of_Second-Order_Differential_Equations, \( \newcommand{\vecs}[1]{\overset { \scriptstyle \rightharpoonup} {\mathbf{#1}} } \) \( \newcommand{\vecd}[1]{\overset{-\!-\!\rightharpoonup}{\vphantom{a}\smash {#1}}} \)\(\newcommand{\id}{\mathrm{id}}\) \( \newcommand{\Span}{\mathrm{span}}\) \( \newcommand{\kernel}{\mathrm{null}\,}\) \( \newcommand{\range}{\mathrm{range}\,}\) \( \newcommand{\RealPart}{\mathrm{Re}}\) \( \newcommand{\ImaginaryPart}{\mathrm{Im}}\) \( \newcommand{\Argument}{\mathrm{Arg}}\) \( \newcommand{\norm}[1]{\| #1 \|}\) \( \newcommand{\inner}[2]{\langle #1, #2 \rangle}\) \( \newcommand{\Span}{\mathrm{span}}\) \(\newcommand{\id}{\mathrm{id}}\) \( \newcommand{\Span}{\mathrm{span}}\) \( \newcommand{\kernel}{\mathrm{null}\,}\) \( \newcommand{\range}{\mathrm{range}\,}\) \( \newcommand{\RealPart}{\mathrm{Re}}\) \( \newcommand{\ImaginaryPart}{\mathrm{Im}}\) \( \newcommand{\Argument}{\mathrm{Arg}}\) \( \newcommand{\norm}[1]{\| #1 \|}\) \( \newcommand{\inner}[2]{\langle #1, #2 \rangle}\) \( \newcommand{\Span}{\mathrm{span}}\), 17.4: Series Solutions of Differential Equations, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Strang) & University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (Herman), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-zczJXSxnw. Its velocity? APPLICATIONS AND CONNECTIONS TO OTHER AREAS Many fundamental laws of physics and chemistry can be formulated as differential equations. The viscosity of the oil will have a profound effect upon the block's oscillations. A 16-lb weight stretches a spring 3.2 ft. Figure \(\PageIndex{7}\) shows what typical underdamped behavior looks like. Letting \(ω=\sqrt{k/m}\), we can write the equation as, This differential equation has the general solution, \[x(t)=c_1 \cos ωt+c_2 \sin ωt, \label{GeneralSol}\]. An ordinary differential equation (ODE) is an equation containing an unknown function of one real or complex variable x, its derivatives, and some given functions of x.The unknown function is generally represented by a variable (often denoted y), which, therefore, depends on x.Thus x is often called the independent variable of the equation. \end{align*}\], Now, to find \(ϕ\), go back to the equations for \(c_1\) and \(c_2\), but this time, divide the first equation by the second equation to get, \[\begin{align*} \dfrac{c_1}{c_2} &=\dfrac{A \sin ϕ}{A \cos ϕ} \\ &= \tan ϕ. If the lander crew uses the same procedures on Mars as on the moon, and keeps the rate of descent to 2 m/sec, will the lander bottom out when it lands on Mars? The principal quantities used to describe the motion of an object are position ( s), velocity ( v), and acceleration ( a). The derivative of this expression gives the velocity of the sky diver t seconds after the parachute opens: The question asks for the minimum altitude at which the sky diver's parachute must be open in order to land at a velocity of (1.01) v 2. \[A=\sqrt{c_1^2+c_2^2}=\sqrt{2^2+1^2}=\sqrt{5} \nonumber\], \[ \tan ϕ = \dfrac{c_1}{c_2}=\dfrac{2}{1}=2. The lander is designed to compress the spring 0.5 m to reach the equilibrium position under lunar gravity. The first step in solving this equation is to obtain the general solution of the corresponding homogeneous equation. Assume a particular solution of the form \(q_p=A\), where \(A\) is a constant. A 1-lb weight stretches a spring 6 in., and the system is attached to a dashpot that imparts a damping force equal to half the instantaneous velocity of the mass. We have \(x′(t)=10e^{−2t}−15e^{−3t}\), so after 10 sec the mass is moving at a velocity of, \[x′(10)=10e^{−20}−15e^{−30}≈2.061×10^{−8}≈0. Such circuits can be modeled by second-order, constant-coefficient differential equations. The last case we consider is when an external force acts on the system. This second‐order linear differential equation with constant coefficients can be expressed in the more standard form The auxiliary polynomial equation is mr 2 + Kr + k = 0, whose roots are The system will exhibit periodic motion only if these roots are distinct conjugate complex numbers, because only then will the general solution of the differential equation involve the periodic functions sine and cosine. Engineering Differential Equations: Theory and Applications guides students to approach the mathematical theory with much greater interest and enthusiasm by teaching the theory together with applications. APPLICATIONS OF SECOND ORDER DIFFERENTIAL EQUATION: Second-order linear differential equations have a variety of applications in science and engineering. We present the formulas below without further development and those of you interested in the derivation of these formulas can review the links. \nonumber\], We first apply the trigonometric identity, \[\sin (α+β)= \sin α \cos β+ \cos α \sin β \nonumber\], \[\begin{align*} c_1 \cos (ωt)+c_2 \sin (ωt) &= A( \sin (ωt) \cos ϕ+ \cos (ωt) \sin ϕ) \\ &= A \sin ϕ( \cos (ωt))+A \cos ϕ( \sin (ωt)). VIBRATING SPRINGS We consider the motion of an object with mass at the end of a spring that is either ver- Differential equations of second order appear in a wide variety of applications in physics, mathematics, and engineering. When \(b^2>4mk\), we say the system is overdamped. (Recall that if, say, x = cosθ, then θ is called the argument of the cosine function.) Ultimately, engineering students study mathematics in order to be able to solve problems within the engineering realm. Therefore, it makes no difference whether the block oscillates with an amplitude of 2 cm or 10 cm; the period will be the same in either case. The restoring force here is proportional to the displacement ( F = −kx α x), and it is for this reason that the resulting periodic (regularly repeating) motion is called simple harmonic. So now let’s look at how to incorporate that damping force into our differential equation. A mass of 1 slug stretches a spring 2 ft and comes to rest at equilibrium. Find the particular solution before applying the initial conditions. from your Reading List will also remove any A summary of the fundamental principles required in the formation of such differential equations is given in each case. The tuning knob varies the capacitance of the capacitor, which in turn tunes the radio. The mathematical theory of MfE. The dot notation is used only for derivatives with respect to time.]. Lect12 EEE 202 2 Building Intuition • Even though there are an infinite number of differential equations, they all share common characteristics that allow intuition to be developed: – Particular and complementary solutions – Effects of initial conditions Equation of simple harmonic motion \[x″+ω^2x=0 \nonumber\], Solution for simple harmonic motion \[x(t)=c_1 \cos (ωt)+c_2 \sin (ωt) \nonumber\], Alternative form of solution for SHM \[x(t)=A \sin (ωt+ϕ) \nonumber\], Forced harmonic motion \[mx″+bx′+kx=f(t)\nonumber\], Charge in a RLC series circuit \[L\dfrac{d^2q}{dt^2}+R\dfrac{dq}{dt}+\dfrac{1}{C}q=E(t),\nonumber\]. What is the transient solution? See Figure . where x is measured in meters from the equilibrium position of the block. Graph the equation of motion over the first second after the motorcycle hits the ground. For example, I show how ordinary differential equations arise in classical physics from the fun-damental laws of motion and force. For motocross riders, the suspension systems on their motorcycles are very important. Example \(\PageIndex{4}\): Critically Damped Spring-Mass System. So the damping force is given by \(−bx′\) for some constant \(b>0\). \nonumber \], Now, to determine our initial conditions, we consider the position and velocity of the motorcycle wheel when the wheel first contacts the ground. Differential equations have wide applications in various engineering and science disciplines. The system is immersed in a medium that imparts a damping force equal to 5252 times the instantaneous velocity of the mass. Differential Equations Course Notes (External Site - North East Scotland College) Be able to: Solve first and second order differential equations. It does not oscillate. For these reasons, the first term is known as the transient current, and the second is called the steady‐state current: Example 4: Consider the previously covered underdamped LRC series circuit. We have \(mg=1(9.8)=0.2k\), so \(k=49.\) Then, the differential equation is, \[x(t)=c_1e^{−7t}+c_2te^{−7t}. 11.2 Linear Differential Equations (LDE) with Constant Coefficients which gives the position of the mass at any point in time. The cosine and sine functions each have a period of 2π, which means every time the argument increases by 2π, the function returns to its previous value. If \(b≠0\),the behavior of the system depends on whether \(b^2−4mk>0, b^2−4mk=0,\) or \(b^2−4mk<0.\). The dashpot imparts a damping force equal to 48,000 times the instantaneous velocity of the lander. Applications of First Order Equations. Solving 2nd Order Differential Equations This worksheet illustrates how to use Maple to solve examples of homogeneous and non-homogeneous second order differential equations, including several different methods for visualizing solutions. Use the process from the Example \(\PageIndex{2}\). What adjustments, if any, should the NASA engineers make to use the lander safely on Mars? Simple harmonic motion. In the metric system, we have \(g=9.8\) m/sec2. APPLICATIONS OF SECOND-ORDER DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS Second-order linear differential equations have a variety of applications in science and engineering. 3. APPLICATIONS OF DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS 4 where T is the temperature of the object, T e is the (constant) temperature of the environment, and k is a constant of proportionality. Omitting the messy details, once the expression in (***) is set equal to (1.01) v 2, the value of t is found to be, and substituting this result into (**) yields. \[q(t)=−25e^{−t} \cos (3t)−7e^{−t} \sin (3t)+25 \nonumber\]. Let time \[t=0\] denote the time when the motorcycle first contacts the ground. These expressions can be simplified by invoking the following standard definitions: and the expressions for the preceding coefficients A and B can be written as. Applying these initial conditions to solve for \(c_1\) and \(c_2\). It does not exhibit oscillatory behavior, but any slight reduction in the damping would result in oscillatory behavior. This chapter presents applications of second-order, ordinary, constant-coefficient differential equations. In the real world, we never truly have an undamped system; –some damping always occurs. A 16-lb mass is attached to a 10-ft spring. An examination of the forces on a spring-mass system results in a differential equation of the form \[mx″+bx′+kx=f(t), \nonumber\] where mm represents the mass, bb is the coefficient of the damping force, \(k\) is the spring constant, and \(f(t)\) represents any net external forces on the system. We have \(k=\dfrac{16}{3.2}=5\) and \(m=\dfrac{16}{32}=\dfrac{1}{2},\) so the differential equation is, \[\dfrac{1}{2} x″+x′+5x=0, \; \text{or} \; x″+2x′+10x=0. Find the equation of motion if the spring is released from the equilibrium position with an upward velocity of 16 ft/sec. We define our frame of reference with respect to the frame of the motorcycle. Graph the equation of motion found in part 2. \end{align*}\], \[e^{−3t}(c_1 \cos (3t)+c_2 \sin (3t)). One of the most famous examples of resonance is the collapse of the. The force exerted by the spring keeps the block oscillating on the tabletop. \nonumber\]. Physical spring-mass systems almost always have some damping as a result of friction, air resistance, or a physical damper, called a dashpot (a pneumatic cylinder; Figure \(\PageIndex{4}\)). We also know that weight W equals the product of mass m and the acceleration due to gravity g. In English units, the acceleration due to gravity is 32 ft/sec2. A mass of 2 kg is attached to a spring with constant 32 N/m and comes to rest in the equilibrium position. Since velocity is the time derivative of the position, and acceleration is the time derivative of the velocity, acceleration is the second time derivative of the position. The relationships between a, v and h are as follows: It is a model that describes, mathematically, the change in temperature of an object in a given environment. Let x(t)x(t) denote the displacement of the mass from equilibrium. Once the block is set into motion, the only horizontal force that acts on it is the restoring force of the spring. The main objective of this paper is to establish new oscillation results of solutions to a class of fourth-order advanced differential equations with delayed arguments. Overview of applications of differential equations in real life situations. Second-order constant-coefficient differential equations can be used to model spring-mass systems. Such a circuit is called an RLC series circuit. Despite the new orientation, an examination of the forces affecting the lander shows that the same differential equation can be used to model the position of the landing craft relative to equilibrium: where \(m\) is the mass of the lander, \(b\) is the damping coefficient, and \(k\) is the spring constant. \(x(t)=−\dfrac{1}{2} \cos (4t)+ \dfrac{9}{4} \sin (4t)+ \dfrac{1}{2} e^{−2t} \cos (4t)−2e^{−2t} \sin (4t)\), \(\text{Transient solution:} \dfrac{1}{2}e^{−2t} \cos (4t)−2e^{−2t} \sin (4t)\), \(\text{Steady-state solution:} −\dfrac{1}{2} \cos (4t)+ \dfrac{9}{4} \sin (4t) \). Another example is a spring hanging from a support; if the support is set in motion, that motion would be considered an external force on the system. Missed the LibreFest? First, since the block is released from rest, its intial velocity is 0: Since c 2 = 0, equation (*) reduces to  Now, since x(0) = + 3/ 10m, the remaining parameter can be evaluated: Finally, since  and  Therefore, the equation for the position of the block as a function of time is given by. Note that the period does not depend on where the block started, only on its mass and the stiffness of the spring. \nonumber\], Applying the initial conditions, \(x(0)=\dfrac{3}{4}\) and \(x′(0)=0,\) we get, \[x(t)=e^{−t} \bigg( \dfrac{3}{4} \cos (3t)+ \dfrac{1}{4} \sin (3t) \bigg) . This content by OpenStax is licensed with a CC-BY-SA-NC 4.0 license. Because the RLC circuit shown in Figure \(\PageIndex{12}\) includes a voltage source, \(E(t)\), which adds voltage to the circuit, we have \(E_L+E_R+E_C=E(t)\). Solve a second-order differential equation representing charge and current in an RLC series circuit. Gravity is pulling the mass downward and the restoring force of the spring is pulling the mass upward. To evaluate the numerical answer, the following values are used: gravitational acceleration: g = 9.8 m/s 2, air resistance proportionality constant:  K = 110 kg/s. Legal. Furthermore, the amplitude of the motion, A, is obvious in this form of the function. The spring‐block oscillator is an idealized example of a frictionless system.
