Homework Help: conceptual physics problem

Posted by Miss.Seena on Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at 10:27pm.

A particle is oscillating in simple harmonic motion. The time required for the particle to travel through one complete cycle is equal to the period of the motion, no matter what the amplitude is. But how can this be, since larger amplitudes mean that the particle travels farther?
