In this lesson, we will learn how to analyze the simple harmonic motion of an object.

Students will be able to

Q1:

A 6 kg mass attached to a spring is observed to oscillate with a period of 3 s. What is the period of oscillation if a 8 kg mass is attached to the spring?

Q2:

A mass on a spring oscillates with a period of 0.8 s and an amplitude of 8 cm. At 𝑡=0s, it is 4 cm to the left of equilibrium and moving to the left. What is the magnitude of the velocity of the mass at time t = 2 s?

Q3:

A particle is moving along a straight line with simple harmonic motion. Its maximum acceleration is 10 ms^{−2} and its maximum speed is 3 ms^{−1}. Calculate the amplitude of the motion.
