# Simple harmonic motion

## Simple harmonic multiple choice questions

Below are some simple harmonic motion conceptual questions.

## Types of Oscillation

Depending upon the external forces and quantities related to oscillation like time period, amplitude, etc, the oscillation can be categorized into three types. They are: Damped Oscillation Free Oscillation Forced Oscillation Damped Oscillation The type of oscillation where the amplitude and energy of oscillating particles gradually decrease with time is called damped oscillation. Due to …

## Simple Pendulum Motion

Simple pendulum can be defined as the heavy metallic bob attached with a inextensible, flexible string of negligible mass fixed at one end so that it can freely vibrate (oscillate) about a fixed position.

## Oscillation of spring

Oscillation of spring with loaded mass executes simple harmonic motion. One end of a spring is attached to support and the other end is attached with some mass. When the mass is extended by a certain displacement and is released, it begins to execute about a mean position due to restoring force in

## Kinetic enrgy and Potential energy in simple harmonic motion

Kinetic energy and potential energy in simple harmonic motion change with time agrfnd position but the overall energy (i.e. sum of K.E and P.E) remain constant throughout the time and position.

## Simple Harmonic Motion

Simple harmonic motion (commonly known as SHM) is a type of oscillatory motion where acceleration produced on a particle or body is directly proportional to the displacement by the particle or body and is directed towards a mean position.
