(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A machine part is undergoing SHM with a frequency of 5 Hz and an amplitude of 1.8 cm. How long does it take the part to go from x=0 to x=-1.80 cm ?

2. Relevant equations

x = Acos (ωt + φ)

3. The attempt at a solution

1.80 cm = 1.80 cm * cos (ωt + φ)

ω = 2πf = 2π* 5hz

cos (ωt + φ) = 1

ωt + φ = 2π

What would φ be?
