Question

# Determine whether the statement is true or false. Justify your answer. Simple harmonic motion does not involve a damping factor.

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 2

Recall that the damping factor is the function multiplied by the trigonometric function. Since the simple harmonic function is in the form:

$d = a\sin \omega t \quad \text{or} \quad d = a \cos \omega t$

where $a$ and $\omega$ are real numbers, and there is no other function besides the trigonometric function, it follows that the statement is true.
