Simple Harmonic Motion and Introduction to Problem Solving

About this Video


In this first session, after a brief introduction, we discuss the role problem-solving plays in the scientific method. We then focus on problems involving simple harmonic motion—i.e., on harmonic oscillators with one degree of freedom in which damping (frictional or drag) forces can be ignored.
