Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in order to find k i think we use \[w=\sqrt{k/m}\] but we need to find w to find k. I don't know if this is the right way to solve the problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is w= the square root of k/m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hi,i think when mass pass origin all of it's E is EK so\[E=(1/2)mv _{2}^{\max}\]&\[v _{\max}=A \omega\]so you can find omeg asd from that you can yield to k

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2At the extreme position ,the block has Zero velocity. Total mechanical energy=K.E+P.E=>130=0+1/2KA^2=>K=(260/A^2)=260/(1.65*1.65)=95.5Nm...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@igbona,if you apply conservation of energy in such a problem then you can easily get your answer. if any query ,tell me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, the x in (1/2)Kx^2 can be substituted by A => (1/2)KA^2. why?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea hence you use that formula in amplitude point this point has x=A did you got it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because of at extreme position the displacement of the block will be X=A,
