    Name three example of objects from eveyday life that exhibit Simple Harmonic Motion and estimate the period of the oscillations. if the period changes under certain conditions, discuss what parameters of the object affect the period and how they do so ?

    Hi,

    Examples of simple harmonic motion are as follows:

    1. A concrete bridge span undergoes simple harmonic motion when a vehical crosses it.
    Estimated period of vibration is 1 second.
    Length of bridge span and mass of it can affect its period of vibration.

    2. A coin lying on dashboard of a moving car can undergo SHM.
    Estimated time period is 0.5 s
    Mass of coin.

    3. Rear view mirror fixed to the body of a moving car can undergo SHM.
    Estimated time period is 0.5 s
    Speed of car ( frequency of piston of engine ), stucture of mirror can affect the period.
