A 395cm oscillator has a speed of 104.5cm/s when its displacement is 2.80cm and 74.5cm/s when its displacement is 6.60cm. What is the oscillator's maximum speed?

  1. Use the fact that the total energy must be the same in both cases.

    (1/2)kX^2 + (1/2) M V^2 = constant

    You need another piece of information; otherwise, you have one equation in two unknowns.

    When you refer to it as a 395 cm oscillator, what is it that equals 395 cm? Do you mean 395 Hz?
