Detail Page

written by Andrew Duffy
This web page is an interactive physics simulation that depicts simple harmonic motion graphs.  The page gives the equations used for simple harmonic motion and illustrates how acceleration and velocity are derived from position.  The applet graphs position, velocity, and acceleration, so the user can see the relations between them.  
This item is part of a collection of similar simulation-based activities for introductory physics students.
