Simple Harmonic Motion Examples?


Simple harmonic motion is the motion of a mass on a spring under linear elastic restoring force driven by Hooke's Law. It can be defined as a type of periodic motion in which the restoring force is directly proportional to the displacement.

Its where the resistive force pulling the motion back is directly proportional to the displacement from the objects equilibrium. (think springs)
Any simple harmonic motion is of the form x(t) = A cos(w t + a) Here the constant A with dimension [x] is called the amplitude.
X(t)=A*cos( 2*pi*f*t+phi) , where x is the disp., A is the amplitude,
A duck sitting on a wave. It sounds very zen, but it's true. Any motion that oscillates sinusoidally. Wikipedia explains it rather well. Source(s):
2 Additional Answers Answer for: what is simple harmonic motion
simple harmonic motion
vibratory motion in a system in which the restoring force is proportional to the displacement from equilibrium. Abbreviation: S.H.M., s.h.m.
Simple harmonic motion is a periodic movement that is neither moved or impaired. A pendulum is an example of a simple harmonic motion since one end suspends a mass, and the other end is fixed to a stationary base. The shorter the string, the faster the pendulum will oscillate. The longer the string, the slower the pendulum will oscillate.
