According to my textbook, the equation of a simple harmonic motion(SHM) is given by,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y = a sin[tex]\omega[/tex]t

or, x = a cos[tex]\omega[/tex]t

But how did these equations came?

Like this there are somany equations in my textbook without derivations.And studying these byheart makes the subject very boring.
