Question 1:
Experimentally it is found that a 6 kg weight stretches a certain spring 6 cm. If the weight is pulled 4 cm below the equilibrium position and released:
a. Set up the differential equation and associated conditions describing the motion.
b. Find the position of the weight as a function of time.
c. Find the amplitude, period, and frequency of motion
d. Determine the position, velocity and acceleration of the weight 0.5s after it has been released.

Question 2:
A 0.25 kg mass is horizontally attached to a spring with a stiffness 4 N/m. The damping constant b for the system is 1 N-sec/m. If the mass is displaced 0.5 m to the left and given an initial velocity of 1 m/sec to the left, find the equation of motion. What is the maximum displacement that the mass will attain?
