Homework Help: Oscillatory motion

  1. Sep 25, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A particle moves in simple harmonic motion with a frequency of 3.00 oscillations/s and an
    amplitude of 5.00 cm. (a) Through what total distance does the particle move during one cycle
    of its motion? (b) What is its maximum speed? Where does this occur? (c) Find the maximum
    acceleration of the particle. Where in the motion does the maximum acceleration occur?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    welcome to the physics forum!

    I notice you've posted a problem but without any relevant equations or work you did.

    We can't help you if you dont show some work.

    First, draw a picture of what the problem is describing.

    Is it a mass on a spring, or a pendulum...?
