An ob ject moves with simple harmonic motion. If the amplitude and
the period are both doubled, the ob ject’s maximum speed is


I believe the object's maximum speed would be halved correct? Considering the regular velocity does not depend on the Amplitude and only the Period would affect it?

Hi yahoo32! :smile:

Thanks for the PM.
I believe the object's maximum speed would be halved correct? Considering the regular velocity does not depend on the Amplitude and only the Period would affect it?
Hint: Think of a pendulum.

Double the amplitude … what happens to the maximum velocity? :smile:

Ahhh! So max v = A w . Therefore doubling T and A will keep the max velocity the same, correct?
