Simple Harmonic Motion

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Kindly go through the attachment.
    (i) vcosθ in a direction parallel to OY.

    (ii) vsinθ in the direction perpendicular to OY.

    The component vsinθ has no effect along YOY' since it is perpendicular to OY
    My doubt is "Why the perpendicularity of vsinθ to OY makes vsinθ to have no effect along YOY'?"

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    id like to think this is circular motion and not simple harmonic motion.

    "Why the perpendicularity of vsinθ to OY makes vsinθ to have no effect along YOY'?"

    It does!

    You can represent SHM with angular velocity. Anyway, i don't see Y' in your picture.
