Amplitude, period of the motion

The motion of an object is described by the equation x= (0.4)cos(pie*t/3)

Find the amplitude and period of the motion.

Solution Preview

In periodic motion such as this, the amplitude is the maximum displacement from equilibrium position. Here the maximum displacement is when the cosine ...
