For circular motion at a constant speed v, the centripetal acceleration of the motion can be derived.
Simple harmonic motion is typified by the motion of a mass on a spring when it is subject to the linear elastic restoring force given by Hooke's Law.
Animations which demonstrate both types of wave and illustrate the difference between the motion of the wave and the motion of the particles in the medium through which the wave is travelling.
An animation to illustrate the relationship between simple harmonic motion and uniform circular motion
Site of the University of Arizona's Lunar And Planetary Lab/Observatory
