Unformatted text preview: v (0) =-8 knots and v ( t 10 ) =-4 knots.) 2. After Sample Problem 2/3 in Text: A harmonic oscillator is deﬁned by its displacement coordinate s = s ( t ) and the associated acceleration a = ¨ s =-ω 2 s , where ω is a real constant. a. What is the physical unit of ω ? b. Write the displacement s ( t ) and its velocity v ( t ) as function of time if s (0) = s and v (0) = v . c. What are the amplitude and periodicity of the motion?
