What is Simple Harmonic Motion?

Simple Harmonic Motion is a type of periodic motion where the restoring force is directly proportional to the displacement from the equilibrium position and is directed towards it.

3

What is the relationship between acceleration and displacement in SHM?

The acceleration is directly proportional to the displacement and is always directed towards the equilibrium position.

New cards

4

When is the velocity maximum in SHM?

The velocity is maximum at the equilibrium position and minimum at the extreme positions.

New cards

5

What is amplitude?

Amplitude is a measure of the magnitude of a wave. It is the maximum displacement of a particle from its equilibrium position in a wave.

New cards

16

How is amplitude measured?

Amplitude is measured in meters (m) for a mechanical wave and in volts (V) for an electromagnetic wave.

New cards

17

What does the amplitude of a wave determine?

The amplitude of a wave determines its intensity and energy.

New cards

18

How does the amplitude of a wave affect force?

The amplitude of a wave can also affect the force.

New cards

19

What is the period of a wave?

The period of a wave is the time it takes for one complete cycle of the wave to occur.

New cards

20

What is the frequency of a wave?

The frequency of a wave is the number of complete cycles of the wave that occur in one s
