1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A ball bounces up and down off the ground and each bounce it returns to the same height. Is this simple harmonic motion? 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution I don't think it is because in simple harmonic motion the maximun velocity occurs in the middle of the amplitudes but for the bouncing ball it occurs right before and right after it hits the ground. If that is correct, can someone explain it better?
