Question #86913

What is simple harmonic motion. Write down the expression for the velocity and acceleration of such motion at the different positions along its path

Expert's answer

**Simple harmonic motion** is a special type of periodic motion or oscillation motion where the restoring force is directly proportional to the displacement and acts in the direction opposite to that of displacement.**Velocity**: @$v(x) = {\omega}(A^2-x^2), \\@$ **Acceleration**: @$a(x) = -{\omega}^2x, \\@$

where A is the amplitude and @$\omega~@$is the angular frequency of the oscillation.
