A 55.0 kg circus performer oscillates up and down at the end of a long elastic rope at a rate of once every 7.20 s. The elastic rope obeys Hooke's Law. By how much is the rope extended beyond its unloaded length when the performer hangs at rest?

    The period of oscillations is
    T = 2•π•sqr(m/k)
    k= 4• π^2•m/T^2 =41.84 N/m

    Hook’s law: F = - kx, F=-mg
    mg = kx,
    x=mg/k=55•9.8/41.84 =12.88 m
