Pendulum Bouncing springs, wheels (circular motion),waves music: these are all harmonic motions.
Cycle A unit motion that repeats over and over.
Frequency In harmonics, the number of cycles an oscillator makes per second; in waves, the number of wavelengths that pass a given point per one second.
Amplitude The maximum distance from the average in harmonic motion,amplitude is often a distance or an angle.
Period The time for one cycle.
Oscillator A system that shows harmonic motion.
Damping Motion/movement of an object where it moves from a distance,but stops.
Linear motion Goes from a place to another. (ex.distance,time,speed,etc)
Harmonic motion Is any motion that is repetitive ( doing the same thing over and over) and caused by restoring.
Hertz A unit of one cycle per second used to measure frequency; the abbreviation is Hz.
Phase Refers to where an oscillator is in its cycle
