# Simple Harmonic Motion: MechanicsWatch

Hello!
Can anyone help me with this question? It seems simple but i dk how to proceed.

A point moving in a straight line with simple harmonic motion, has velocities v1 and v2 when its distances from the centre are x1 and x2. Show that the period of motion is 2π√(((x1)^2-(x2)^2)/((v2)^2 - (v1)^2)

Can you start with the formula for the velocity as a function of distance from centre.

If so, then just plug in your two sets of values, and eliminate the amplitude and rearrange.

I'll do this. Thx!
