Simple Harmonic Motion
For simple harmonic motion, which is periodic motion where there is a restoring force proportional to the displacement (like a spring, F = -kx), there are several videos. These are for the basic derivation, small angle approximations, and how to solve initial conditions problems. A fourth video is an application to a simple 1-D quantum mechanics problem, which shows where quantum numbers come from! Have fun!
