Simple Harmonic Motion - Force, Acceleration, and Velocity at 3 Positions

Identifying the spring force, acceleration, and velocity at the end positions and equilibrium position of simple harmonic motion. Amplitude is also defined and shown. Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 topic.

Content Times:
0:01 Identifying the 3 positions
0:43 Velocity
1:43 Spring Force
2:14 Amplitude
2:30 Acceleration
3:22 Velocity at position 2
4:12 Is simple harmonic motion also uniformly accelerated motion?
