Unformatted text preview: frequency. This concept is important. A block with a small displacement will move with slower velocity, but with the same frequency as a block with a large displacement. Notice also that our value for σ is the same as what we called the constant b in our original equation. So now we know that a = x m and b = σ . In addition we can take the time derivative of our equation to generate a full set of equations for simple harmonic motion: x = x m cos( σt ) v = σx m sin( σt ) a = σ 2 x m cos( σt ) Thus we have derived equations for the motion of a given simple harmonic system....
