## Homework Statement

Is the daily movement of a student from home to school and back simple harmonic motion?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't think it is. This type of movement is linear. It involves distance, speed and so on. It does not follow a sinusoidal wave pattern, either because though it is periodic, it's not regular. Does that make sense? Can someone else perhaps explain it better?

$$m/frac{d^2x}{dt^2}=-kx$$
