https://imgur.com/VHjoHtP - Displacement graph

The attached graph shows the vertical displacement (y) that a weight bouncing from a string would make given there was no friction, for a number of seconds (x).


1. What is the period and amplitude of the graph?

2. What is the graph's frequency and what does it mean given the situation?

The period is the time for one complete cycle (2).


The amplitude is half the distance between peak and trough (10)


Frequency is 1/period cycles/second or 2pi/period radians per second.
