PhysCasts: Exploring Simple Harmonic Motion
Hall, B. (Brenton) (2013)
This PhysCast is about simple harmonic motion. A 0.12 kg body undergoes simple harmonic motion of amplitude 8.5 cm and a period of 0.20 s. (a) What is the magnitude of the maximum force acting on it? (b) If the oscillations are caused by a spring what is the spring constant?
