The motion of a motor-driven ball rotating in a circle is shadow-projected sideways. It is shown to coincide with the motion of a mass on a spring executing simple harmonic motion at the same frequency.

A mass on a spring is driven by a large geared motor apparatus, and exhibits resonance at the appropriate frequency. Below resonance, the driving motion is in phase with the motion of the mass. At resonance the mass is 90 degrees out of...
