## Study Notes

### Simple Harmonic Motion

• Simple harmonic motion is a type of motion that occurs when the net force acting on an object is proportional to its displacement from its equilibrium position.
• The restoring force in simple harmonic motion is proportional to the displacement of the object from its equilibrium position.
• When there is friction or dissipation of energy, simple harmonic motion will eventually come to a stop, as the energy is lost due to the friction or dissipation.
• The inertial force and the restoring force in simple harmonic motion are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.
• Simple harmonic motion results in oscillatory motion, where the object moves back and forth about its equilibrium position.
• Friction or dissipation of energy has a damping effect on simple harmonic motion, causing the amplitude of the oscillations to decrease over time.
