hii everyone...i urgently need a solution to my question due to my exams. My question is: Show that two simple harmonic motions with frequency P and 2P when added will result in a periodic function of frequency P. Generalize the above for a number of harmonic functions with freqyencies P, 2P , nP, etc.
I would say that if added linearly the fundamental remains the same frequency but the wave shape will change due to the presence of the harmonics. In other words if the frequency was a sinsusoidal shape, the addition of harmonics will alter the sinewave. I assume you are wanting a mathematical proof, sorry about that, but from a practical standpoint I believe this is true.
