My question had 2 parts:
a) A 2.0 kg object oscillates with simple harmonic motion on a spring of force constant 580.0 N/m. The maximum speed is 1.0 m/s. What is the total energy of the object and the spring?
Answer: 1.0 J
b) What is the maximum amplitude of the oscillation?
This question seems like it would be easy, but I just don't understand what I'm solving for.
N/m. I was doing it right all along, but the computer wasn't accepting meters as the correct unit.
