simple harmonic motion jonbeš-e hamâhang-e sâdé Fr.: mouvement harmonique The motion of a body subjected to a restraining force which is directly proportional to the displacement from a fixed point in the line of motion. The equation of simple harmonic motion is given by x = A sin(ωt + θ_{0}), where x is the body's displacement from equilibrium position, A is the → amplitude, or the magnitude of harmonic oscillations, ω is the → angular frequency, t is the time elapsed, and θ_{0} is the → initial phase angle. |
simple harmonic oscillator navešgar-e hamâhang-e sâdé Fr.: oscillateur harmonique simple An oscillator whose force is proportional to its extension, according to → Hooke's law. The way the oscillator moves is called → simple harmonic motion. → simple; → harmonic; → oscillator. |
