# Analyzing Simple Harmonic Motion

Not what you're looking for?

The applet at the following site (http://mp.pearsoncmg.com/probhtml/ActivePhysics/pt1a/Media/Vibrations/PositionGraphsEqns/Sim4.html) shows two masses on springs, each accompanied by a graph of its position versus time.

A) What is an expression for x_1 (t), the position of mass I as a function of time? Assume that position is measured in meters and time is measured in seconds. Express your answer as a function of t.

B) What is x_2 (t), the position of mass II as a function of time? Assume that position is measured in meters and time is measured in seconds. Express your answer as a function of time t.

##### Solution Summary

The solution provides calculations for the position of a mass on a position of mass on a spring.
