Abstract

In the previous topic we considered the continuous interchange of potential and kinetic energy in oscillating systems where the total energy remains trapped or would remain trapped in the absence of damping. Figure 11.2 (page 90) shows a wave-like relationship between displacement and time for an isolated oscillating system of this kind.
