What is oscillatory motion?

a body is said to be in oscillatory motion when it swings to and fro about a mean position. Ex a swing ,pedulam of a clock etc......

Can every oscillatory motion be treated as simple harmonic motion in the limit of small amplitude?

No. Simple harmonic motion requires that the acceleration is proportional to the displacement (and in the opposite direction). It is possible to have periodic motion where tha (MORE)

What are examples of oscillatory motion?

Oscillatory motion can be described as any object moving/swinging back and forth, moving up and down, pulsating, spinning, or vibrating. A few examples of each are: swinging (MORE)

What is the answer to 20c plus 5 equals 5c plus 65?

20c + 5 = 5c + 65 Divide through by 5: 4c + 1 = c + 13 Subtract c from both sides: 3c + 1 = 13 Subtract 1 from both sides: 3c = 12 Divide both sides by 3: c = 4
Thanks for the feedback!

Can a motion be periodic and non oscillatory?

A motion can be both periodic (a repetitive function) and also  be non-oscillatory due the condition that the motion (mechanical)  occurs during a set time interval from t1 (MORE)
