. Explain the types of Simple Harmonic Motion


Best Answer

SHM or Simple Harmonic Motion can be classified into two types:

1. Linear SHM

2. Angular SHM

1. Linear Simple Harmonic Motion

When a particle moves to and fro about a fixed point (called equilibrium position) along with a straight line then its motion is called linear Simple Harmonic Motion.

For Example: spring-mass system

Conditions for Linear SHM:

The restoring force or acceleration acting on the particle should always be proportional to the displacement of the particle and directed towards the equilibrium position.

Angular Simple Harmonic Motion

When a system oscillates angular long with respect to a fixed axis then its motion is called angular simple harmonic motion.

Conditions to Execute Angular SHM:

The restoring torque (or) Angular acceleration acting on the particle should always be proportional to the angular displacement of the particle and directed towards the equilibrium position.
