Amplifier amplifies the input signal whereas an Oscillator generates a sinusoidal signal!

An oscillator will generate a waveform. An amplifier takes a small wave and 'amplifies' it to a big wave.

An oscillator is part of a generator. A generator has many more functions than a simple oscillator.

oscillator preduces sin waves or osclitations while as multivibrator preduces squar wave

A nonlinear or relaxation oscillator produces a non-sinusoidal output, such as a square, sawtooth or triangle wave. And RC oscillator produces sinusoidal output.

The difference between an RC and LC is that the frequency - determining device in the RC oscillator is not a tank circuit. LC can operate with A or C biasing, while RC can only operate with A.

An amplifier is usually stabilized by means of negative feedback. An oscillator is an amplifier which is made unstable by means of positive feedback.

Resonator is a device used either to generate wave or select specific frequencies from a signal while oscillator is an electronic circuit that creates repetitive signal.

In case of HARMONIC OSCILLATOR the relation b/n FORCE AND DISPLACEMENT is LINEAR but in the case of ANHARMONIC OSCILLATOR relation b/n force and displacement is not linear.Hence this non-linearity arises the fact that the spring is not capable of exerting a restoring force that is proportional to the displacement.

oscillator is which oscillates to a required proportion in order to generate signal with required frequency. whereas, regulator limits the signal to a predefined value and offers a constant out put through out

To increase the efficiency. Comparison between crystal oscillator and ceramic resonator.

On free vibration the beam or structure is not suffering influence of forces (Beam on space). In forced vibration the structure is under presence of force example bridges. Later on will you discover the free vibration is important to obtain natural frequencies and mode shapes. the difference b\w forced and free vibration can be understand by the examples.............a) the vibration of a pendulum is free vibration which needs no external force to vibrate. b) the vibration of a machine like a drill is forced vibration which needs an external force to vibrate.
