Static Electric-Spring and Nonlinear Oscillations

  title={Static Electric-Spring and Nonlinear Oscillations},
  author={Haiduke Sarafian},
The author designed a family of nonlinear static electric-springs. The nonlinear oscillations of a massively charged particle under the influence of one such spring are studied. The equation of motion of the spring-mass system is highly nonlinear. Utilizing Mathematica [1] the equation of motion is solved numerically. The kinematics of the particle namely, its position, velocity and acceleration as a function of time, are displayed in three separate phase diagrams. Energy of the oscillator is… CONTINUE READING
