IB Physics: 4.1 (+9.1) Oscillations

It would be impossible to write an equation for the motion of a fly buzzing about a room (or a hummingbird about a woodland). There needs to be some pattern in the movement that we can replicate mathematically. Motion with constant acceleration has a simple pattern that can be modelled using linear and quadratic equations. Oscillations are more complex but if we simplify the situation we can see a pattern that can be...
