This is the periodic motion of a body or a particle along a straight line such that the acceleration of the body is directed towards a fixed point and is also directly proportional, but opposite in direction, to the displacement from the equilibrium position.

Examples of bodies that exhibit simple harmonic motion are:

  • The motion of the balance wheel of a wristwatch.
  • The motion of a simple pendulum.
  • The motion of a mass suspended from a spring.
  • The motion of a child’s swing.
  • The heartbeat.
  • The motion of a loaded test tube oscillating vertically in a liquid.
  • The motion of the pendulum of a wall clock.
  • The motion of a piston in a gasoline engine.
