**drwls**, Friday, February 3, 2012 at 11:20pmFirst get the spring constant, k, from the frequency f and the mass m.

2 pi f = sqrt(k/m)

k = m (2 pi f)^2 = 31.6 N/m

You can get the total energy from

Etotal = (1/2)mV^2 + (1/2)kX^2

= (1/2)*0.2*(0.3)^2 + (1/2)*31.6*(.05)^2

= 0.009 + 0.0395 = 0.0485 J

Get the amplitude Xmax from the total energy by setting V = 0
