# Oscillation AND SHM

We want to support a thin hoop by a horizontal nail and have the hoop make one complete small-angle oscillation each 2.0s .

What must the hoop's radius be (in meters) ?

and

An object is undergoing SHM with period 0.260 s and amplitude 5.55 cm. At t=0 the object is instantaneously at rest at x= 5.55 cm.

Calculate the time it takes the object to go from x= 5.55 cm to x= -1.55 cm.

your caps lock key is stuck, maybe?

For the second question, start with the general equation of motion of an shm. Do you know what that is?

in my questions that all they gave you i need like a answer lol and some work i cant figure these two out thats all

The equation describing shm is given by y=asin(wt+c), where y is the displacement, w is the angular frequency, t is time and c is the phase difference. Lets start with what you do know about shm. Any thoughts on how to go about this? Not mathematically, just conceptually.
