A 240 g mass is attached to a spring of constant k = 5.4 N/m and set into oscillation with amplitude A = 26 cm.
(a) Determine the frequency of the system in hertz.
(b) Determine the period.
(c) Determine the maximum velocity of the mass.
(d) Determine the maximum force in the spring.
(a) f = [1/(2 pi)]*sqrt(k/M) Hz
(b) P = 1/f is the Period
(c) Vmax = A*(2*pi*f)
A must be in meters to get V in m/s
(d) Fmax = A*k
A must be in meters to get F in Newtons
M = 0.24 kg
