Periodic Motion

by Jared Rovny, PhD

In physics, periodic motion is motion that is regular and repeating, an example of which is a vibrating object (in general, most vibrating objects are characterized by periodic motion). You may recognize a sinusoidal curve, from math class, as an example of periodic motion, or the pendulum-like swinging of a yo-yo from your childhood. This course covers the basic descriptions of periodic motion and the definition of a wave and discusses objects undergoing periodic motion due to Hooke's law (restorative force).

Pretty good
By Anna H. on 10. January 2017 for Periodic Motion Example

The lecture itself is good. His pace is slow enough to follow, yet not too slow, and he is extremely clear. Including questions in later lectures would be a great improvement to the course.
