A mass 0.2kg attached to the lower end of a light helical spring produces an extension of 0.05m.
Calculate the force constant of the spring. The mass is pulled down a further 0.02m and released. Calculate the time period of subseuent oscillations and the maximum value of the accelartion during motion. Assume g =10ms^2. I am struggling with all parts of the uestion  please can you outline a method for me to follow. Thanks alot.

Would the acceleration be g?
Thanks
