The displacement, x= Acos([tex]\varpi[/tex]t+[tex]\phi[/tex]), repeats for every increase in 2pi. Why can't I make the above equal to Acos([tex]\varpi[/tex]t+[tex]\phi[/tex] + 2pi), and divide by cos. This gives [tex]\phi[/tex]]=0. This is clearly wrong. Why?
And how does angular frequency apply to a mass on a spring anyways, it doesn't move in a circle.
