Lesson: 2.8 Simple Harmonic Motion __________________________ Whiteboard Work Graph __________________________ Lesson: 2.8 Simple Harmonic Motion Goal: To solve problems involving simple harmonic motion. DOD Sinusoidal: Graph of motion that is similar to a sine wave. Frequency: Cycles per time period (usually seconds). It is the reciprocal of the period. and Ch_2 Page 1 and represents time! If Period , then Frequency (Frequency is the same as cycles per second) Displacement: Amount a mass is pulled away from its resting position (a). _____________________ Examples A weight is hanging at rest from a spring. At , the weight is pulled down units and released. It makes full cycles every second. Write an equation using the following values of and , and the graph the equation. Ch_2 Page 2 Ch_2 Page 3 ...
