A 5.0-kg object moves on a horizontal frictionless surface under the influence of a spring with
force constant 10
N/m. The object is displaced 50 cm and given an initial velocity of 10 m/s back
toward the equilibrium position. (a) What is the velocity of the motion? (b) How much energy is
associated with the motion? (c) What is the amplitude of the oscillation?

Your school name is not the subject.
Is the force constant of the spring 10^3 N/m?
(a). Did you omit a word? The velocity of the motion changes during oscillation.
