# Simple Harmonic Motion definition & Characteristics 2023

The Simple harmonic motion is a very interesting topic in class 11 and also in Engineering syllabus. In this Post we will discuss characteristics of simple harmonic motion and force law for simple harmonic motion.

## Simple Harmonic Motion Definition:

• A Pendulum,a Mass on a string and many other kinds of oscillators exhibit a special kind of oscillatory motion motion known as Simple harmonic Motion.

or

• The Restoring force of moving object is directly proportional to the magnitude displacement of object & acts toward object equilibrium position.

General Equation:   F=-Kx and x=Csin(nt+α)

Example: Pendulum of the Clock.
