check my answer please :) SIMPLE HARMONIC MOTION - Question: The rise and fall of the ride at the mouth of a river is assumed to be simple harmonic motion. The depth of water at low tide is 0.7m and the depth at high tide is 3.7m. If low tide occurred at 8:55am and high tide at 3:05pm, find the earliest time at which the boat could enter the mouth of the river if it required the water to be at least 2m deep.

Low tide at 8:55am is 0.7m High tide at 3:05 pm is 3.7m Therefore, centre at 12:00pm will be 2.2m Amplitude = 1.5 Period = 2pi/n = ?

i suggest you calculate the period as you have the amplitude the period, T, is time for a complete oscillation. you go from trough to peak during times 8:55am to 3:05 pm. isn't that half an oscillation? once you have T, you can then use \( \omega = \frac{2 \pi}{T}\) in your shm equation: \(y - y_0 = A cos( \omega t + \phi)\), if that is how you are presenting it.

wait.. if 8:55am - 3:05 pm is HALF an oscillation.. that is 6hrs and 10 minutes... So it takes 12 hrs and 20 minutes for a complete oscillation.. Therefore w = 740 (12hrs10 mins) Sooo... 2pi/n = 740 n = pi/370 |dw:1433425233117:dw| |dw:1433425384627:dw|

oops i wrote that wrong LOL. Every part which says 360 should be 370 :)

soz? LOL Oh dear.. i made so many errors -_- OKAY i will write it out on paper because that's the easiest method.

final: i assume adding \(\pi \) on RHS somehow negates the fact it is a negative cosine. only saying because i would need to work it through to get it, and don't have time -- but I suspect it is a little trick that you use regularly....

yeah, it is a trick that i found online LOL. Okay basically if i write my working out properly, it will look like this: http://prntscr.com/7d1ex1
