SHM Graphs and the Cosine Equation
Take notes on the following information
Simple harmonic motion is a sinusoidal motion. It can be described as either a sine wave or a
cosine wave; we are going to use cosine.
x= A cos (t)

Universal Gravitation
Take notes on the following information.
Gravity is a fundamental force of the universe, and it occurs between all objects with mass. Isaac Newton figured
out the equation for the force of gravity between any two objects, called the
Oscillating Systems
Take notes on the following information
Oscillation a repeated motion. A swinging pendulum or a mass bouncing on a spring.
Equilibrium resting location when the object stops oscillating, also is the midpoint of
the oscillation.
