What is the amplitude of oscillation?

What is the potential energy when the displacement is one-half the amplitude?

At what displacement are the kinetic and potential energies equal?

What is the value of the phase angle \phi if the initial velocity is positive and the initial displacement is negative?

**drwls**, Sunday, April 3, 2011 at 3:40pm(1/2) k x^2 + (1/2)mV^2 = 0.21 J

= total energy = constant

Set V = 0 to solve for the amplitude, since V = 0 then

When displacement is half the amplitude, potential energy is 1/4 of the total, 0.1575 J

When KE = PE,

(1/2) kx^2 = 0.015 J. Solve for x at that time

The phase angle depends upon what you call zero phase. Yopu haven't said
