IUPUI PHYS 15200 Page 1 of 1 Pre-Lab08: SIMPLE HARMONIC MOTION Name Due at the beginning of the lab period Consider a mass connected to a Hooke’s law spring oscillating along the x axis in simple harmonic motion. The equation for the position of the mass is given by x ( t ) = A sin( ω t + ϕ ), where A is the amplitude of the oscillation,
