The Connection between Circular and Simple Harmonic Motion Model shows the the connection between uniform circular motion and simple harmonic motion. This connection is one way to justify the basic equation of motion for an object experiencing simple harmonic motion. This equation also corresponds to one dimension of uniform circular motion. In this simulation, we even go beyond the equation above a little, and explore the phase angle.
