Astronauts in space cannot weigh themselves by standing on a bathroom scale. Instead, they determine their mass by oscillating on a large spring. Supppose an astronaut attaches one end of a large spring to her belt and the other end to a hook on the wall of the space capsule. A fellow astronaut then pulls her away from the wall and releases her. The spring's length as a function of time is shown in the figure below.

Her mass is 72.95 kg.


What is her speed when the spring's length is 1.16 m?

    It seems to me she will be slamming into the wall...

    There is not enough information here to give you an answer.
