A particle is said to be in simple harmonic motion (SHM), if the acceleration of the particle is always directed towards a fixed point (called the mean position) and the magnitude of the acceleration is directly proportional to the displacement of the particle from the mean position.
For a body in SHM, are directed towards the mean position: .
