**Elena**, Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 3:52pmω=sqrt(k/m)=sqrt(4.6/0.1) = 6.76rad/s.

x=A•sinωt

v=dx/dt=A•ω•cosωt

Divide the first equation by the second and obtain

x/v= A•sinωt/ A•ω•cosωt= ω•tanωt,

tanωt = x•ω/v=20•6.76/194=0.7

ωt =arctanωt =0.61 rad,

sinωt = 0.571

A=x/sinωt = 20/0.571=35 cm.

For the second case:

x1=A•sinωt1,

sinωt1 =x1/A=31.5/35 =0.9.

cos ωt1=sqrt(1-sin²ωt1)=0.44.

v1= =A•ω•cosωt1=

=35•6.76•0.44=104 cm/s.

**Jay**, Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 4:04pmK is 5.3 N/m. Why are you using 4.6 N/m?

**Elena**, Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 4:08pmThis is the problem similar to that I've solved for another post. Substitute your data and calculate yourself

**Elena**, Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 4:13pmCheck my calculations.

ω=sqrt(k/m)=sqrt(5.3/0.1) = 7.28rad/s.

x=A•sinωt

v=dx/dt=A•ω•cosωt

Divide the first equation by the second and obtain

x/v= A•sinωt/ A•ω•cosωt= ω•tanωt,

tanωt = x•ω/v=20•7.28/194=0.75

ωt =arctanωt =0.64 rad,

sinωt = 0.6

A=x/sinωt = 20/0.571=33.3 cm.

For the second case:

x1=A•sinωt1,

sinωt1 =x1/A=31.5/33.3 =0.95.

cos ωt1=sqrt(1-sin²ωt1)=0.33.

v1= =A•ω•cosωt1=

=33.3•7.28•0.33=80 cm/s.

**Jay**, Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 4:22pmI got a similar answer of 79.0 cm/s using the conservation of energy equation.

U(i) + K(i) = U(f) + U(f)

Thank you for the help. And sorry for asking this question. I didn't see the similar question when I searched mine in the search bar.
