Questions related to SHM

  1. Jun 12, 2012 #1
    Well, i've been into the Simple Harmonic Motion topic.. In my book, it's quite a small portion.. However, i know that it is much bigger. Can someone list me the types of SHM and formulas needed... Particularly about Pendulums and Springs... For example, i've read in a separate book something about pendulums realating mg for getting the restoring force.. Summing up, i need the full detailes about SHM or atleast links to good sites... I am studying Alevel physics (Edexcel).. Thanks in advance to whoever give me a kind hand! :D

    Why don't you try an A Level text book (omg - not a web page??)? They contain all you need to know about SHM. A slightly older text book may even have the derivation of the sinusoidal waveform using Calculus - but I don't think that is part of A level Physics any more.
