With the basics of forces and energy covered in Units 1-4, weโ€™ll now shift our focus to applying these concepts to a new form of motion, Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM). SHM involves a periodic motion, typically focused on a pendulum or mass on a spring. Youโ€™ll be focusing on describing the energy transformations, forces, accelerations, and velocities of these objects and discuss the practical applications of them. SHM topics will account for ~2-4% of the AP exam questions.ย 

Applicable Big Ideasย 

Big Idea #3: Force Interactions - The interactions of an object with other objects can be described by forces.

Big Idea #5: Conservation - Changes that occur as a result of interactions are constrained by conservation laws.
