**drwls**, Friday, May 28, 2010 at 10:42pmHere some facts about simple harmonic motion to help you answer these yourself.

(a) The angular frequency is w = 2 pi f radians per second.

Tha maximum velocity is w A, where a is the amplitude.

The spring constant k is related to w and M by

w = sqrt(k/m)

Compute w. You will need it later.

(b) 0.10 m is 2/3 of the maximum deflection. Potential energy is proportion do the square of deflection, and will be (2/3)^2 = 4/9 of the maximum energy, or

(4/9)*(1/2)*k*(Amplitude)^2. The velocity will be (5/9) of the maxiomum energy. Use that to solve for velocity.

(c) I already mentioned that the toal energy is (1/2)*k*(Amplitude)^2

(d) X = A cos wt
