    When a particle oscillates with simple harmonic motion, the period of the oscillation is...

    a) ...directly proportional to the displacement from the origin
    b) ...directly proportional to the acceleration of the particle
    c) ...independent of the frequency of oscillation
    d) ...independent of the amplitude of oscillation

    (im thinking D but not sure)

    I'd say D since the amplitude isn't a factor that affects the time period. So if you change the amplitude the time period would still be the same.
