    Simple harmonic motion occurs when the acceleration is proportional to ... The maximum displacement of the particle from its resting position is known as the amplitude. ... and in opposition to its displacement x from its equilibrium position. .... This has the same form as simple harmonic motion equation, x''(t) - ω2 x(t), and so ...

    the amplitude is 8 but if i read the question correctly "what is the maximum displacement from the equilibrium position?" would be half of that, equilibrium meaning zero

    Therefore 0 would be my final answer?

    isn't amplitude = maximum displacement from equilibrium
