Simple Harmonic Motion
How are the two types of motion different and similar?
This is the spring enrgy link and this is the skater link.
Part 1: Compare (how are these the same)and contrast (how are they different) these two types of motion and the energy transformations that are taking place.
Part 2: Are these both examples of simple harmonic motion?
|level 3||Level 4|
|How well can you identify and characterize the motion and energy conversions involved in both situations||You can identify the energy conversions involved in both situations and compare them. You can identify the characteristics of simple harmonic motion and effectively use them to support your argument.||As with level 3, but with some support using some mathematical modeling analysis.|
