Flash animation: Interactive flash animation to study the simple harmonic oscillator (horizontal). First, an experimental assembly with force and motion sensors (detectors). Then, a theoric equivalent assembly.
Simple harmonic motion: Ideal oscillator whose evolution over time is described by a sinusoidal function whose frequency depends only on the characteristics of the system and whose amplitude is constant.
In classical mechanics, a harmonic oscillator is a system that, when displaced from its equilibrium position, experiences a restoring force F proportional to the displacement x:
F = k x
