Simple Harmonic Motion

    In graphs of SHM, it says that "identify and use relevent parameters from the following graphs"

    1. displacement-time

    My question is, what it meant by "relevant parameters"?

    I believe they are referring to the minimum amount of parameters that are required to describe the wave. Those would be: frequency, wavelength or speed, amplitude, and phase shift.
