A 5.80 kg object on a horizontal frictionless surface is attached to a spring with spring constant 860 N/m. The object is displaced from equilibrium 50.0 cm horizontally and given an initial velocity of 9.9 m/s back toward the equilibrium position.
(a) What is the frequency of the motion?
units in Hz

(b) What is the initial potential energy of the block-spring system?
units in J

(c) What is the initial kinetic energy?
units in J

(d) What is the amplitude of the motion?
units in m
