Problem 16.7: Which graph properly denotes position versus time?

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

The animation shows the analogy between circular motion (coin on a turntable) and simple harmonic motion (hanging mass on a spring). Restart. Given the animation (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds), which graph properly denotes position vs. time for a horizontal spring synchronized with the turntable?
