What is the Spring Constant?
A spring is hanging from the ceiling. Attaching a 600 g mass to the spring causes it to stretch 18.0 cm in order to come to equilibrium.
What is the spring constant?
ΔL = 18cm
k = mg/ΔL
= 3.27 N/m
From equilibrium, the mass is pulled down 10 cm and released. What is the period of oscillation?
T= 2π√(.6kg/32.7 N/m)
What is the maximum speed of the mass?
vmax = 2π(fA)
vmax = 2π (1.175)(.10)
At what position or positions does it have this speed?
