Kettering Univ. See in particular the movies and
animations for harmonic motion, forced oscillations
Russell's physics animations
* Simple Harmonic Oscillator - with and without damping, transfer of energy between kinetic and potential forms
* Damped Harmonic Oscillator - underdamped, overdamped, and critically damped
* Forced Harmonic Oscillator - transient and steady state response to a force applied to the mass
* The Simple Pendulum - comparing the linear approximation (small angle) with a real pendulum
* Coupled Oscillators - energy transfer between two mass-spring systems coupled together
* Dynamic Absorbers - J.P. Den Hartog's classical undamped tuned dynamic absorber
* Tacoma Narrows Bridge - (0.668 MB mpeg movie) - when engineers don't account for resonance when designing structures
