# Identify the correct definition: 1. If after every certain interval of time, a particle repeats its motion, then the motion is called periodic motion. 2. To and fro motion of a particle is called oscillatory motion. 3. Oscillatory motion described in terms of single sine and cosine functions is called simple harmonic motion. 4. All of the above

A particle of mass $$m$$ and charge $$\text-q$$ moves diametrically through a uniformly charged sphere of radius $$R$$ with total charge $$Q$$. The angular frequency of the particle's simple harmonic motion, if its amplitude $$<R$$, is given by:
1. $$\sqrt{\dfrac{qQ}{4 \pi \varepsilon_0 ~mR} }$$
2. $$\sqrt{\dfrac{qQ}{4 \pi \varepsilon_0 ~mR^2} }$$
3. $$\sqrt{\dfrac{qQ}{4 \pi \varepsilon_0 ~mR^3}}$$

The figure shows the circular motion of a particle. The radius of the circle, the period, the sense of revolution, and the initial position are indicated in the figure. The simple harmonic motion of the x-projection of the radius vector of the rotating particle $$P$$ will be:

1. $$x \left( t \right) = B$$ $$\text{sin} \left(\dfrac{2 πt}{30}\right)$$

2. $$x \left( t \right) = B$$ $$\text{cos} \left(\dfrac{πt}{15}\right)$$

3. $$x \left( t \right) = B$$ $$\text{sin} \left(\dfrac{πt}{15} + \dfrac{\pi}{2}\right)$$

4. $$x \left( t \right) = B$$ $$\text{cos} \left(\dfrac{πt}{15} + \dfrac{\pi}{2}\right)$$
