11th Grade Quizzes & Trivia

Below is an 11th grade physics trivia quiz on simple harmonic motion! One of the major rules when it comes to force is that for every action there is a reaction and the simple harmonic motion is a special type of periodic motion where the restoring force on the moving object is directly proportional to, and opposite of, the object's displacement vector. Do you know how to calculate force? Take this quiz and get to refresh your understanding.
