Transcript of Simple Harmonic Motion

Simple Harmonic Motion
An oscillator moves back and forth around an equilibruim at a fixed rate.
Period: Time to complete one oscillation
Frequency: Number of oscillations per second, measured in Hertz.
Simple Harmonic Motion
A simple oscillator has one fixed frequency.
A harmonic oscillator is sinusoidal
Simple Harmonic Motion
Because SHM is sinusodial in time, a derivative with respect to time will tell you the velocity.
It will be one quarter of the wave out of phase
What is the period of this wave?
If this is a graph a of velocity, what is its period, and what is the amplitude of displacement?
What is its frequency?
T = 3 s
f = .333 Hz
