(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A mass-spring system has k = 105 N/m and m = 1.75 kg.

If it is undergoing simple harmonic motion, how much time does it take the mass to go from x = A to x = 0?

2. Relevant equations

T=2pi*sqrt(m/k)

3. The attempt at a solution

Tried plugging in the values for the equation I gave to find T, then cutting it in half to find the amount of time the question asked for, but it's not the correct answer.
