Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1depends on whose asking a pendulum is *approximated* by shm because strictly speaking the restorative force is not proportional to displacement. second, you mention " maximum displacement from equilibrium varies", and not sure what that means.... i'd say yes in the pub, but i'd wonder if asked by a "proper scientist"
