Displacement (s): the total distance that a simple harmonic oscillator moves
from its equilibrium point - measured in meters (m).
Amplitude (A): the maximum displacement of a simple harmonic oscillator
- measured in meters (m)
Frequency (f): the number of oscillations per second - measured in Hertz (Hz or s-1)
Period (T): the time required for an oscillator to complete one cycle
- measured in seconds (s)
*** Let's take a closer look at the relationship between frequency and period.
Frequency is measured in cycles per second, whereas period is measured in time per cycle. They are reciprocals of each other!
Therefore: f = 1/T and T =
