Unformatted text preview: period, (c)the frequency, (d)the angular frequency. (e)This curve is not exactly a cosine. Explain what this tells you about the equation for position as a function of time. 4. From the graph of position versus time at the right, find (a)the time when the speed is maximum, (b)the position when the speed is a maximum, and (c)the maximum speed. (d)Use the results from problem 3 to calculate the maximum speed and compare your answer to your answer from part c....
