Homework Help: Find the period of a particle with only max vel. and amplitude

  1. Jan 25, 2012 #1
    A particle moves with SHM of amplitude 10 cm and a maximum speed of 0.5 m/s. ...find the objects period

    Do you know any equations relating to SHM that might help?

    no , been trying for the last hour to find one that could help

    The basic equations should be available to you if you are studying SHM !!
    Do you know that max acceleration is given by ω^2 A (A is amplitude) and that
    Max velocity is given by ωA
    and that T = 2π/ω

    Hope this will help you

    Max vel = ωA , didnt know that . think that solves it ..... thanks very much technician
