Oscillation Equations of Motion

The motion of an oscillating mass is measured using a Motion Sensor, and graphs are produced of position, velocity and acceleration. The relative phase of each is examined, and compared to theory. Calculations are made for the maximum velocity and maximum acceleration during an oscillation and the equation of motion is written for this system.
