For velocity at a certain particle in a simple harmonic oscillation is the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

v= w (anguluar frequency) times the squareroot of A^2-x^2

but if i wanted to find the acceleration at a certain particle in a simple harmonic oscillation, i can somehow derive a formula from the above equation right? But how would u derive it?

I know that that V= dx/dt ..and a= (d^2)x/dt^2

ugh, i forgot my calculus, anyone clear it up for me?

thanks
