Physics in Motion

Oscillations

How objects behave when they are moving back and forth, such as a person swinging on a swing.

Dynamics of Simple Harmonic Motion

How we describe oscillations.

The Pendulum

Explore a common example of simple harmonic motions in the pendulum.

Damped Harmonic Motion

In most cases, simple harmonic motion eventually decays and stops through damped harmonic motion.

Driven Oscillations

External forces can be used to amplify simple harmonic motions.
