Harmonic Motion
Simple harmonic motion is typified by the motion of a mass
on a spring when it is subject to the linear elastic restoring force given by Hooke's Law.
The motion is sinusoidal in time and demonstrates a single resonant frequency.
Simple Harmonic Motion Equations The motion equation for simple harmonic motion contains a complete description of the motion, and other parameters of the motion can be calculated from it. The velocity and acceleration are given by: The total energy for an undamped oscillator is the sum of its kinetic energy and potential energy which is constant at: Or, the way I remember it:
