Angular Simple Harmonic Motion

  1. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The balance wheel of an old fashioned watch oscillates with an angular amplitude π rad and period of 0.500 s. Find the maximum angular speed of the wheel.

    2. Relevant equations
    There are a lot of equations in this chapter and I don't even know where to start :confused:

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Like I said, I have no clue what I am doing

  3. Maybe you could start by writing an equation that links angle traversed, amplitude, time period and time elapsed.
