Two people with a combined mass of 130 kg hop into an old car with worn-out shock absorbers. This causes the springs to compress by 9.50 cm. When the car hits a bump in the road, it oscillates up and down with a period of 1.66 s.

Find the total load supported by the springs.

Find the mass of the car.
