### Is the motion of simple pendulum an example of simple harmonic motion?

A simple harmonic motion is one for which the acceleration of
the body into consideration is proportional its displacement from
the mean position and the direction of the acceleration is always
directed towards that mean position. It can be shown that, provided
that the amplitude of oscillation is small, the motion of a simple
pendulum is simple harmonic.
All simple harmonic motions follow one rule F=-kx . When the
oscillation is small(around 5 °), the motion of simple pendulum is
simple harmonic motion.

### What is the difference between noise and simple harmonic motion?

Simple harmonic motion is motion which is fully determined by
its period, amplitude and phase. Noise is the name given to motion
where the period is indeterminate. This may be because there is no
periodicity or because the motion is a superposition of such a
large number of simple harmonic motions of different periodicities
that the resultant is almost aperiodic.

Simple harmonic motion (SHM) is in one dimension whereas
oscillatory motion is 2-dimensional motion that is SHM in one
dimension but linear in another.
