Hi all,

 Plz check my code below for Phase plot of Simple Harmonic motion. The output should be a circle with x along X-axis and dxdt along y-axis.

I'm not getting the output. kindly let me know where i'm wrong.

 Clear[k, m];
k = 1;
m = 3;
solution =
 NDSolve[{x''[t] + k/m x[t] == 0, x[0] == 5, x'[0] == 0},
  x, {t, 0, 250}, MaxSteps \[RightArrow] 50000,
  WorkingPrecision \[RightArrow] 25]
ParametricPlot[Evaluate[{x[t], x'[t]} /. solution], {t, 0, 100},
 PlotRange \[RightArrow] All,
 AxesLabel -> {"x", "\!\(\*OverscriptBox[\(x\), \(.\)]\)"}]

Regards, Rc

Hi, Rahul,

Try this:

Clear[k, m];
k = 1;
m = 3;
solution =
 NDSolve[{x''[t] + (k/m )*x[t] == 0, x[0] == 5, x'[0] == 0},
   x, {t, 0, 250}] // Flatten
ParametricPlot[Evaluate[{x[t], x'[t]} /. solution], {t, 0, 100},
 AxesLabel -> {"x", "x'"}, PlotRange -> All]

The main difference in the function Flatten that I apply to the solution. I t removes the extra parentheses. The latter have prevented you from getting solution.

Have fun, Alexei
