Simple Harmonic Motion
- A term describing the motion which occurs when a vibrating structure is displaced and experiences a restoring force proportional to its displacement e.g. a pendulum. In the absence external forces and damping, the variation of displacement with time is sinusoidal.
- The equations of motion are:
