dc.description.abstract We design a low-cost, electromagnetically coupled, simple harmonic oscillator and demonstrate free, damped and forced oscillations in an under-graduate (UG) Physics laboratory. It consists of a spring-magnet system that can oscillate inside a cylinder around which copper coils are wound. Such demonstrations can compliment the traditional way in which a Waves & Oscillations course is taught and offers a richer pedagogical experience for students. We also show that with minimal modifications, it can be used to probe the magnitude of viscous damping forces in liquids by analyzing the oscillations of an immersed magnet. Finally, we propose some student activities to explore non-linear damping effects and their characterization using this apparatus. en_US
