 P: 271 Period does not depend on amplitude. Correct? I deduced this from the equations for simple harmonic motion: ω=2πf ω=√(k/m)
 PF Patron HW Helper P: 2,688 Yes, you are correct. The period of a SHO depends on the k value, i.e. stiffness of the spring, and the mass of the oscillating body as $$\omega=\sqrt{\frac{k}{m}}$$
