Reading Question: A little calculus review…. Consider a purely one-dimensional problem, where a particle’s position as a function of time is x(t). The speed is then v=dx/dt, and acceleration is a=dv/dt. The particle is moving in simple harmonic motion: x(t)=Acos( ω t) . If A=0.3m and ω =2 s -1 , what is the maximum value of the particle’s acceleration? A. 1.2 m/s 2 B. 0.6 m/s 2 C. 4.0 m/s 2 D. 0.18 m/s 2 E. 0.075 m/s 2
