A mass is oscillating on the end of a spring. The distance, y, of the mass from its equilibrium point is given by the formula y=6zcos(10wt)

where y is in centimeters, t is time in seconds, and z and w are positive constants.
(a) What is the furthest distance of the mass from its equilibrium point?
distance = cm

(b) How many oscillations are completed in 1 second?
number of oscillations =

  1. (a) 6z is the amplitude

    (b) 2 pi f t = 10 w t
    f = 5/(2 pi) is the frequency, which is what they are asking for
