A 2.60-kg block is attached to a horizontal spring that has a spring constant of 160. N/m. At the instant when the displacement of the spring from its unstrained length is -0.115 m, what is the acceleration a of the object?

  • Physics -

    force on the spring:kx

    but force= mass*acceleration

    so acceleration=kx/mass

    check my thinking.
