Uniform circular motion and simple harmonic motion: Amplitude and period of this motion
An object executing simple harmonic motion has a maximum speed of 4.3 m/s and a maximum acceleration of 0.65 m/s^2.
Find (a) the amplitude and (b) the period of this motion.
Solution. We can assume that its position equation is
We know that v(t)=x'=-Absin(bt+c)
With good explanations and full calculations, the problems are solved.
