Lesson: Simple Harmonic MotionPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to describe simple harmonic motion quantitatively and define its parameters such as amplitude, frequency, and phase.

Reciprocating motion uses the rotation of a motor to produce linear motion back and forth, as in the operation of the reciprocating saw shown in the diagram. If the motor rotates at 84 Hz and has a radius of 1.9 cm, find the maximum speed of the saw blade during its back and forth motion.
A tire has a tread pattern in which a crevice occurs every 3.50 cm along the tire’s circumference. Each crevice makes a single vibration as the tire moves. What is the frequency of these vibrations if the car moves at a speed of 41.0 m/s?
What is the period of 73.0 Hz electrical power source?
