Since the wheel is a rigid body, the time it takes any point on
the wheel to rotate an angle theta is the same. Hence if the
arrow is aimed at a point just after a spoke has passed a
Ch 15 Solutions to the Supplemental Problems on SHM
1) A body oscillates with SHM according to the equation
x(t) = (6.0 m) cos [(3 rad/s)t + /3 rad)]
a) At t = 2 s, what are the displacement, velocity, acceleration?
b) What are the frequency and period of
