With the basics of forces and energy covered in Units 1-4, we’ll now shift our focus to applying these concepts to a new form of motion, Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM). SHM involves a periodic motion, typically focused on a pendulum or mass on a spring. You’ll be focusing on describing the energy transformations, forces, accelerations, and velocities of these objects and discuss the practical applications of them. SHM topics will account for ~2-4% of the AP exam questions.Β 

Applicable Big IdeasΒ 

Big Idea #3: Force Interactions - The interactions of an object with other objects can be described by forces.
Big Idea #5: Conservation - Changes that occur as a result of interactions are constrained by conservation laws.

Key Concepts

  • Period (T)
  • Amplitude
  • Frequency (f)
  • Equilibrium Point
  • Kinetic Energy (K)
  • Potential Energy (Ug ,Usp)
