3 Compare the motion of a 2D harmonic oscillator with two different sets of initial conditions. In case (1) the particle is released from rest and oscillates along the path shown. In case (2) the particle starts with a larger x position and with a negative x component of the velocity. What can you say about the amplitude of the x and y motion? A) Ax1>Ax2, Ay1>Ay2 B) Ax1<Ax2, Ay1=Ay2 C) Ax1=Ax2, Ay1>Ay2 D) Ax1<Ax2, Ay1<Ay2 E) Ax1=Ax2, Ay1=Ay2
