Mechanics

Simple Harmonic Motion

This is the fourth of a series of modules that cover calculus-based mechanics. You will explore simple harmonic motion through springs and pendulums. This short course will culminate in the ability to use the Taylor Formula to approximate a variety of other situations as simple harmonic motion. 

The complete series of modules is based on the MIT subject 8.01: Physics I, required of all MIT undergraduates.  The modules are:
  • Mechanics: Kinematics and Dynamics 
  • Mechanics: Momentum and Energy 
  • Mechanics: Rotational Dynamics
  • Mechanics: Simple Harmonic Motion
To understand the material in this course you should have taken Mechanics: Kinematics and Dynamics, Mechanics: Momentum and Energy, and  Mechanics: Rotational Dynamics.
