A block is executing simple harmonic motion on a frictionless surface with an amplitude of .100m. At a point 0.060m away from equilibrium point the speed of the block is 0.320m/s. What is the period? What is the displacement when the speed is 0.20m/s?

The amplitude of a system moving in simple harmonic motion is doubled. Determine by what factor does period change since T=2pi(m/k)^(1/2), so it doesnt change. When i typed in unchanged, it says wrong since "the correct answer is not zero". Should i put in "1" then?

Objects of equal mass are oscillating up and down in simple harmonic motion on two different vertical springs. The spring constant of spring 1 is 186 N/m. The motion of the object on spring 1 has 3 times the amplitude as the motion of the object on spring 2. The magnitude of ...

You need to know more than math to answer this question. It is about simple harmonic motion. The amplitude of oscillation is 0.4 m and the period is 1.2 s. The vertical height at time t is given by y = 0.5 - 0.4 cos(2 pi t/1.2) = 0.5 -0.4 cos(5*pi*t/3) To answer your question...
