an object attached to a coiled spring is pulled down a distance a from its rest position and then released. Assuming that the motion is simple harmonic with period T, write an equation that relates the displacement d of the object from its rest position after t seconds. Also assume that the positive direction of the motion is up:

$a=6,T=\pi seconds$

The equation can be given as $d=-6\mathrm{cos}\left(2t\right)$

We are given $a=6,T=\pi seconds$

An object suspended from spring pulled down Hence $a=-6$

Also it starts with amplitude position we will use the cosine function

Now we find $\omega $

$\omega =\frac{2\pi}{T}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\omega =\frac{2\pi}{\pi}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}w=2$

The equation can be given as $d=-6\mathrm{cos}\left(2t\right)$

The equation of motion can be given as $d=-6\mathrm{cos}\left(2t\right)$
