Calculate the ratio (pure number) of the kinetic energy to the potential energy of a
simple harmonic oscillator when its displacement is half its amplitude

bobpursley,
well, if amplitude is 1/2, and PE is related to the square of amplitude, then PE must be 1/4, so KE is 3/4 max, so ratio is 3/1 check my thinking.
