Introduction to Acceleration in Simple Harmonic Motion Calculator

In simple harmonic motion (SHM), the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to its displacement from its equilibrium position and is directed towards that position. It is also inversely proportional to the mass of the object. Here, a represents the acceleration, k is the spring constant, m is the mass of the object, and x is the displacement.

Parameter usage:

Example valid values:


Data validation

The mass and spring constant must be greater than zero, and the displacement must be a number.


This calculator determines the acceleration of an object in simple harmonic motion based on its mass, the spring constant, and its current displacement.
