x = (16 cm)cos[(16 rad/s)t + π/2 rad]

What force, applied to the block by the spring, results in the given oscillation?

why can you not just do F=ma?

- physics please! -
**drwls**, Friday, June 19, 2009 at 10:04amAn oscillating force is applied by the spring. You can use F = ma

The force required to make this motion happen is

F = ma = m * d^2x/dt^2

= -16^2 * (0.16m) m cos [(16 rad/s)t + π/2 rad]

= -256 m x Newtons

(If x is in meters)
