A body executes simple harmonic motion. The potential energy (P.E.), the kinetic energy (K.E.) and total energy (T.E.) are measured as function of displacement x. Which of the following statement is true? (A) K.E. is maximum when x = 0 (B) T.E. is zero when x = 0 (C) K.E. is maximum when x is maximum (D) P.E. is maximum when x = 0. ?

Dear student

In S.H.M., at mean position i.e. at x = 0 kinetic energy will bemaximum and PE will be minimum. Total energy is alwaysconstant.
