Simple Harmonic Motion Examples?

Answer

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.

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.
