4.1 - Kinematics of SHM
1 4.1.1
1.1 An oscilliation is a periodic movement, for example a little boy on a swing: the acceleration of the boy is proportional to his ditsance from the equilibrium position (when he is straight above the groud), and his acceleration is always directed towards that poistion over the ground
2 4.1.2
2.1 Displacement,x - distance from a fixed point (m)
2.2 Amplitude, X0- Maximum displacement from the equilibrium position (m)
2.3 Frequency, f- The number of cycles per unit time (Hz)
2.4 Period, T- The time taken for one complete cycle (s)
2.5 Phase difference- The angular difference between points on two waves at a given time
3 4.1.3
3.1 Simple harmonic motion- Motion in which the acceleration is proportional to the distance from, and is always directed towards, a fixed point
3.1.1 acceleration = -angular frequency squared times the displacement a= -w^2x
