A particle executes simple harmonic motion with an amplitude of 5 cm. When the particle is at 4 cm from the mean position, the magnitude of its velocity in SI units is equal to that of its acceleration. Then, its periodic time in second is

Best answer

The correct option is answer a) 8π/3 

EXplaination ::

v=\(w\sqrt{A^2-x^2}\)   --{speed}

Acceleeation a=\(-\omega ^2x\)  

As \(|v|=|a|\) 

\(ω ={3\over4}⇒T = 2{π\over ω }= 8{π\over3}\)
