#### Question

The periodic time of a linear harmonic oscillator is 2π second, with maximum displacement of 1 cm. If the particle starts from extreme position, find the displacement of the particle after π/3 seconds.

#### Solution

Given:-

`a=1cm,t=pi/3s,omega=(2pi)/T=(2pi)/(2pi)=1`

To find: Displacement (x)

Formula: x = A cos ωt

Calculation: From formula,

`"x"=1cos(1xxpi/3)=cos(pi/3)`

`therefore"x"=0.5cm`

**The displacement of the particle after π/3 seconds is 0.5 cm.**

Is there an error in this question or solution?
