Simple Harmonic Oscillation is defined as the oscillation of a moving body, which is repeated after a definite interval of time. In oscillation, the moving body has the maximum velocity at the centre point and minimum velocity on the end points of the moving path. The moving bodies have velocity, acceleration, displacement amplitude and periodic time. Acceleration of the body is defined as the change in velocity per unit time. Displacement is defined as the distance of the moving body at any time form the centre point of the moving path. Amplitude of the moving body is defined as the maximum displacement of the body, on one side of the moving path, from its centre point. The acceleration is directly proportional to the displacement, but always directed towards the centre point. The time taken by the moving body in one complete oscillation is defined as the periodic time of the body. The periodic time depends upon effective length of the thread, from which the oscillatory body is hanged and on gravitational acceleration. In case of spring motion, the periodic time depends on the constant force of the spring and mass of the body. This exclusive work has a perfect account to harmonic oscillations in an interesting manner. This work would be able to serve its purpose by being beneficial for scientists, professionals and students.
