A 240 g mass is attached to a spring of constant k = 5.4 N/m and set into oscillation with amplitude A = 26 cm.

(a) Determine the frequency of the system in hertz.

(b) Determine the period.

(c) Determine the maximum velocity of the mass.

(d) Determine the maximum force in the spring.

  • Physics -

    (a) f = [1/(2 pi)]*sqrt(k/M) Hz
    (b) P = 1/f is the Period
    (c) Vmax = A*(2*pi*f)
    A must be in meters to get V in m/s
    (d) Fmax = A*k
    A must be in meters to get F in Newtons
    M = 0.24 kg
