    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/b]

    Let Z(t)=(3/4)Sin(2π/3t) be the equation for a SHO in the Z diection about z=0.

    1. what are the amplitude, phase, frequency, angular frequency and period of this SHO?

    2. what is the maximum velocity? what is the maximum acceleration?

    3. when Z= 3/4, what are the velocity and acceleration?

    4. when z=0, what are the velocity and acceleration?

    You must show some attempt, however bad you think it is. Write the meanings of the various symbols in SHM, and then try to see what is given here. You WILL get help.
