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

Through simple harmonic motion produced on a trampoline Ivan ossilates freely, with a period of 0.85s.

On a reference circle show Ivans position after 1/8th of a cycle. Label (and solve) the distance of this position from the equilibrium position.(Max displacement is 0.14m). C and A are labelled as the maximum displacement, and B the equilibrium position

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I drew a reference circle, creating a right-angled triangle with an angle to the vertical of 45 degrees. The answer does not make much sense to me. Ill submit it as an attachment.
