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

This is a horizontal mass spring system in a simple harmonic motion problem set.

Vmax = 20 m/s

F = 10 N

m = 0.5 kg

Find Amplitude (A) and spring constant (k)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I could not figure out a way to solve this problem, and the only thing i could come up with was that the amplitude is equal to the x distance stretched. If this is true, then i can solve it using Hooke's law and other equations, but I'm not too sure it works out like that. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
