There a five positions (A=-10cm, B=-5cm, C=0cm, D=5cm, E=5cm). A block is at rest at location C when a student pulls it to position A. The student then releases the block and it begins to oscillate. Given the block has a mass of 2kg and the spring has a constant of 40 N/m, what is the block's maximum magnitude of acceleration and at what location(s) does it occur?

    D and E seem to be the same position. Please verify the wording of your question

    I thought it was similar so I wrote... x + y = 30cm^3 x + 2y = 61.5cm^3 i.e 2x + 2y =60cm^3 x + 2y = 61.5cm^3 therefore x= -1.5cm^3(volume of methane) and y= {61.5-(-1.5)}/2= 31.5cm^3(volume of ethane) However my teacher said the volume …
