This chapter deals with fundamental aspects of simple harmonic motion. The ideas of simple harmonic motion are illustrated by the simple system of a mass attached to a spring and other one-variable systems such as the simple pendulum, physical pendulum, and LC circuits. Both undamped and damped free systems are included in this chapter.

Keywords: simple harmonic motion; damping; harmonic motion; one-variable system; simple pendulum; physical pendulum; electromagnetic oscillations
