1. Periodic motion
• A motion that repeats itself over and over again
• Characterized by the time required to complete a cycle of it repetitive motion
2. Period( T)
• Time required for one cycle of a periodic motion
• Represented by the variable T
• SI Units : Time in seconds / cycle = sec
3. Cycle
Has no dimensions
4. frequency
• Another measure of periodic motion that measures the number of oscillation per unit of time; tell how frequently (rapidly) the oscillations take place.
• Represented by the variable f
• the HIGHER the frequency, the MORE RAPID the oscillation

• Given by the equation:
• f= 1/T
• SI Units: cycle/seconds= 1/s or s^-1
5. Hertz(Hz)
• 1Hz= 1 cycle/ 1 second
• Measure for frequency
