A object-spring system undergoes simple harmonic motion with an amplitude of A. Does the total energy change if the mass is doubled but the amplitude is not changed?
Do the kinetic and potential energies depend on the mass?
Explain. Thanks in advance

    energy is proportional to amplitude squared.

    Kinetic and potential energys depend on amplitude.
