Only one of the following statements about an object executing simple harmonic motion is true. Tell whether each is true or false and explain why for each.

Step 1

Simple harmonic motion is described as,

Step 2

Acceleration is a function of sine. Whereas, velocity is a function of cosine. When sine is maximum, cosine is minimum. Therefore, only 4^{th} statement is true.

Step 3

Velocity can be zero when cosine term is zero. Acceleration is zero at *t* = 0. Acceleration and velocity can never be zero at the same time since they are different ...
