Refer to the following information for the next question.
A harmonic oscillator with an amplitude of 30 cm is displaced from equilibrium by +30 cm at t = 0. At t = 0.20 seconds, it is displaced from equilibrium by +27 cm, without having passed through the equilibrium position.
What is the period of the oscillator's motion?
Refer to the following information for the next two questions.
A block moving with SHM has a period of 2.0 seconds. The maximum displacement from equilibrium in any direction is 5.0 cm.
Write the equation to describe the displacement, given that at time t = 0 seconds the displacement is zero and the velocity is positive.
Write the equation to describe the displacement, given that at time t = 0 seconds the displacement is zero and the velocity is negative.
