    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    .A mass on a spring with a constant of 3.24 N/m vibrates, with its position given by the equation X= (5cm) cos (3.60t rad/s). (a) During the first cycle, for 0 <t < 1.75 s, when is the potential energy of the system changing most rapidly into kinetic energy? (b) What is the maximum rate of energy transformation?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Re: problem

    You have to show SOME attempt yourself so we can get an idea of where you are stuck. We don't spoon-feed answers

    Also, "problem" is exceptionally lame as a subject. It would be better to put something meaningful.
