The force acting on a particle moving along X-axis is F = −k(x − vo t) where k is a positive constant. An observer moving at a constant velocity v0 along the X-axis looks at the particle. What kind of motion does he find for the particle?
As the observer moves with a constant velocity along the same axis, he sees the same force on the particle and finds the motion of the particle is not simple harmonic motion.
