This web page is a Java animation relating to simple harmonic oscillation. Two spring oscillators are displayed with a choice of three views: different amplitudes, different frequencies, or different phases. The user can observe changes in the graphs as a function of each. Included is an analysis of the SHM general equation based upon the graphs displayed.
