When a 0.101 kg mass is suspended at rest from a certain spring, the spring stretches 3.80 cm. Find the instantaneous acceleration of the mass when it is raised 5.90 cm, compressing the spring 2.10 cm.

2. w=kx
.101g=k*3.80

k=.101g/3.80

force of compression=
= (.101g/.0389)(.0590-.0380)
figure that out, then
using f=ma or a=f/m
and we have to add g because the object is going down,

a=g+(.101g/.0389)(.0590-.0380) /.101g)
