We recently did a test about simple harmonic motion and there's one question that I still don't understand the answer to. The question is 'explain why, when the student rises above point P, her motion is no longer simple harmonic'.

In simple harmonic motion the acceleration to the equilibrium is directly proportional to the displacement from the equilibrium however when the girl is above P the acceleration is constant so you can no longer call it simple harmonic motion
