A block attached to a spring with unknown spring constant oscillates with a period of 7.0 s. Parts a to d are independent questions, each referring to the initial situation. What is the period if...

The mass is doubled?

The mass is halved?

The amplitude is doubled?

The spring constant is doubled?

Physics is so not my subject, I need help!

  • Physics -

    Period of oscilation is proprtional to the square root of Mass and inversely proprtional to the square root of k, the spring constant. It is independent of amplitude.

    Use that fact to figure out the asnwers to those questions.

  • HELP! -

    I don't have any other information though except for what is in the original question.

  • Physics -

    You should not need any more information than I already provided

  • Physics -

    you suck at answering qestions
