Part (a) of the figure below is a partial graph of the position function x(t) for a simple harmonic oscillator with an angular frequency of 1.00 rad/s; Part (b) of the figure is a partial graph of the corresponding velocity function v(t). The vertical axis scales are set by xs = 7.5 cm and vs = 2.5 cm/s. What is the phase constant of the SHM if the position function x(t) is given by the form x = xmcos(ωt + ϕ)?
