A mass suspended on a spring will exhibit sinusoidal motion when it moves. If the mass on a spring is 85 cm off the ground at its highest position and 41 cm off the ground at its lowest position and takes 3.0 s to go from the top to the bottom and back again, determine an equation to model the data.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.085  41 gives us the actual number for our altitudes... 44 divide that by 2 to get the amplitude.... 22 22 trig f(x) + 41 so far

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sinusoidal means they want it to mimic the sin function.... and they dont give any more detail there so we will use it as our model. 22 sin(x)+41 so far :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03 seconds I assume is the full period from peak to peak...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02pi/3 is then our period modification. 22 sin(2pi x/3 ) + 41 sounds about right...
