Simple Harmonic Motion

SIMPLE HARMONIC MOTION (SHM)
Position x = Acos(ωt)             A = amplitude          ω = 2πf
Velocity v = -Aωsin(ωt)          vmax = Aω2
Acceleration v = -Aω2cos(ωt)        amax = Aω2
Frequency Factor ω = 2πf          Spring: ω = √k/m         Pendulum: ω = √g/L
Frequency / Period f = 1 / T          T = 1 / f
