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

Is Time Period = $$\int \frac{1}{v} dx$$ ??

If yes, the under what limits of integration??

Hi particlemania!
If x is a function only of t, and if v = dx/dt, and is non-zero, then yes ∫ dx/v = ∫ (dt/dx)dx = ∫ dt, and this should work for any limits.

If v = 0 at some point, it may still work … what do you think?
