(II) Construct a Table indicating the position of the mass in Fig. at times , and , where is the period of oscillation. On a graph of vs. , plot these six points. Now connect these points with a smooth curve. Based on these simple considerations, does your curve resemble that of a cosine or sine wave (Fig. 11-8a or ?
