Worksheet: Simple Harmonic Motion as a Function of Time
In this worksheet, we will practice using simple harmonic motion equation to write the displacement, velocity, and acceleration in terms of time.
The figure shows a simple pendulum consisting of a ball attached to the end of a light inextensible string of length 165 cm. The pendulum started moving from rest from point oscillating through an angle of , where . Find the speed of the ball at the point , given that it is the midpoint of the ball’s path. Take the acceleration due to gravity .
