Hi,
I know the basics for Uniform Circular Motion and Standard Harmonic Motion, but I was wondering if anybody could explain them to me in more detail, or possibly give me any equations? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I always think of them as more or less the same thing, since you can decribe SHM (thats SIMPLE harmonic motion) by applying time dependence to uniform circular motion.

Follow http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/java/shm/shm.html [Broken] for a great demonstration.

http://physics.bu.edu/py105/notes/SHM.html [Broken] has a decent explantation and some equations to get you started. Any more specific questions, post them here.
