Description:

The equation of motion of a one-dimensional simple harmonic oscillator is x(t) = Acos(wt+f) where A is the amplitude, omega is the angular frequency, and phi is the phase. Verify the correctness of these equations for the maximum speed and maximum acceleration by measuring the angular frequency of the oscillator and the amplitude of the oscillator, calculating the maximum speed and acceleration, and comparing these values to those found on the graphs.
