Ignoring the mass of the spring, what is the mass m of the fish?

(and why the heck do we have a fish on a spring?)

**bobpursley**, Friday, May 22, 2009 at 9:16amI am uncertain when is the length 10cm? When stretched with a 250N force?

if so, k=250/.1=2500N/m

If you are in a calculus based physics course, this is of some interest

If you are in a plug and chug physics course, then

f=1/2PI *sqrt(k/m) and you solve for m.

thanks!
